In early Germanic paganism, *Wulþuz ("glory") appears to have been an important concept, perhaps personified as a god, or an epithet of an important god; it is continued in Old Norse tradition as Ullr, a god associated with hunting and archery.
Ullr is a handsome hunting winter-god, the son of the goddess Sif, and the stepson of the thunder-god, Thor. Ullr possesses warrior-like attributes and is called upon for aid in individual combat. He resides at Ydalir (Yew Dales). He is married to Skaði.
Although not much has been recorded about Ullr, he must have been a very prominent deity in the Norse pantheon at one time because, according to one tradition, the god Óðinn offered Ullr’s favors as a reward to the one who would aid him.
