Frigg is the most powerful of all the goddesses in Norse mythology. She is described as a goddess associated with foreknowledge and wisdom. She is the goddess of love, fate and fertility and is often associated with the earth. She is pure and good, the most beautiful of the gods and is portrayed as equally wise and is in every way her husband, Odins equal. 
Frøya is the next most powerful goddess. She is the goddess of love and fertility, just like Frigg, but she is also the goddess of war and death. In the Norse mythology they believed that if you die in battle you are going to be received at the gods halls when you die. Here you drink all night and fight and train all day, to prepare yourself for the great battle between the gods, Ragnarok. Ragnarok is a series of future events, including this great battle, where the world as we know it will end, for both the gods and the humans. Afterward the world will resurface, the surviving gods will meet and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors. The gods need warriors, and after a battle it is said that Frøya is walking among the dead on the battlefield, picking the best fighters to accompany her to her hall Sessrymne in Folkvang. The remaining half is being sent to Odins great hall, Valhall.

Frøya is known for owning a feathered cloak that enables her to shape shift into a falcon
