Gefjon (2)

Gefjon (non.)
Gefjon is a goddess in Snorri's Edda but in Heimskringla she is part of the group of people who travel with Óðinn from Asia to the nothern lands. She plays the same role in both sources in tricking King Gylfi of Sweden into giving her a plough share of land which she and her four giant sons, whom she has changed into oxen, drag away to the coast of Denmark.
