Origin[edit | edit source]

Iounn is the Norse Goddess associated with apples and youth and the wife of the skaldic god Bragi. In the Prose Edda it is written that she is the keeper of apples and granter of eternal youthfulness. Within the work it states that Loki lured Iounn into the woods, he then turned into an eagle kidnapping her, transforming her into a nut to return her to Asfard. The mythology of Iounn's apples were told in a story where Skirnir, the gods' messenger, gave one of the apples to Geror, a lesser goddess, to woo her. Later the couple gifted the apples to the major goddess Frigg who sent it to King Rerir. The king's wife ate the apple resulting in a six-year pregnancy and the caesarean section birth of their son and the hero Volsung.

Effects[edit | edit source]
