The Norse god of justice, Forseti, radiates the light of truth. He is eloquent, wise and, most of all, a fair and persuasive mediator. Forseti presides over all disputes of gods and men, giving all a proper hearing.
Forseti rules on his exalted throne in the radiant palace Glitnir, whose silver roof and pillars of gold shine so brightly that it can be seen from afar. Here, he patiently listens to both sides of every dispute, arriving at an equitable decision that none dare break for fear of incurring his wrath.
He is the beloved son of Balder, god of light, and Nanna, goddess of purity. Forseti means "presiding one" in old Norse and "president" in modern Icelandic.
