Note to Þul Ásynja 2III

[2] Rindr: Mother of Váli, Baldr’s avenger (see Þul Ása I l. 4 and Bdr 11/1-4), and a mistress of Óðinn’s, whom he won by spells (cf. KormǪ Sigdr 3; see also Gylf, SnE 2005, 26, 30 and Skm, SnE 1998, I, 19, 30, 35-6). Rindr is probably a giantess who has been included among the goddesses, but in the story related by Saxo (Saxo 2005, I, 3, 4, 1-8, pp. 204-9), Rinda is a daughter of the king of the Ruthenians (Russians). For suggested etymologies, see AEW: Rindr.
