The Norns. Goddesses of fate in Norse Mythology.

They are female beings who create and control fate. This makes them the most powerful entities in the cosmos – more so than even the gods since the gods are subject to fate just like any and all other beings.

According to one description of the Norns in the Old Norse poem Fáfnismál there are a great many of them and no one knows the exact number. However the most popular representation of them is three.

They live at the well Urd in Asgard (home of the Gods and Goddesses). Their names are Urd “What Once Was” Verdandi “What Is Coming into Being” and Skuld “What Shall Be”.

They spend most of their time spinning the threads of life to decide the fate of all living beings. The three Norns do this by sitting at the root of Yggdrasil and weave the faith of every living being into a web or thread.
