Balder

Balder (Bald`er) , the sun-god of the Norse mythology, “the beautiful, the wise, the benignant,” who is fated to die, and dies, in spite of, and to the grief of, all the gods of the pantheon, a pathetic symbol conceived in the Norse imagination of how all things in heaven, as on earth, are subject in the long-run to mortality.
