In Germanic mythology, Thor is a hammer-wielding God associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind and also hallowing and fertility.

Thor is a prominently mentioned god throughout the recorded history of the Germanic people, from the Roman occupation of regions of Germania, to the tribal expansions of the Migration Period, to his high popularity during the Viking Age, when, in the face of the process of the Christianization of Scandinavia, emblems of his hammer, Mjölnir, were worn and Norse pagan personal names containing the name of the god bear witness to his popularity.
