How about this for an LNAB?

We have four profiles for Frigg, a couple of them are empty, but I think there's only one Frigg. Unless we really think she could have been daughter of Cadwaladyr she has no known parents. Asaland seems a good compromise at least for the time being. I'd like to deal with this now as she has lots of duplicates among her descendants and working from the top seems the best way to go. Alternative to my mind would be Unknown. I only have Ynglinga Saga to hand. Thoughts please except about some of the dates which don't mean anything.
WikiTree profile: Frigg Asaland

What a mess. Better you than me. You’ve got your work cut out for you, but in the end, it’ll be worth it as an improvement. It doesn’t make WikiTree looks good when we have situations like this.
I filed a Open profile request and the profile is now open for collaboration.

Since Frigg is the wife of Odin and Odin is dated 100 BC the profile should be removed and links be to her wikipedia page. Right? That's what we done with the other BC characters. We let the mythological profiles stay on Wikitree because otherwise somebody else would just come and put them right back there. So unless something has changed with the Wikitree rules she should not be on here.

Thought about that.(I think Snorri tied them to the time of Caesar Augustus but cannot find the quote). I don't care what we do as long as it makes sense. (We only have 3 Friggs now). I can help tidy up, someone else can decide what to do about the resulting profile.

Is this even a real, historical person? Or is this simply mythology?
by George Fulton G2G6 Pilot (499k points)

Looks like garbled Nordic mythology to me.

She was a goddess.
The gods were Asar or Æsir or whatever. So they lived in Asaland.

Are Adam and Eve still  in WikiTree?
I seem to remember they have been removed.
Excellent articles in the link, esp. the first one. After reading about Euhermerism, I can see that competing philosophies here on WikiTree inhibit some things we might want to do, like working on the Frigg profiles.
I strongly recommend Guy Halsall's book about King Arthur stories. Halsall is a serious medieval historian based in York. He also has a great sense of humour.
I hate this, Andrew, because I’m a sucker for a good historical novel. Now I’ve got to get onto Amazon... again! (Really, thanks!)

Just had another look at Ynglinga Saga. Snorri cites his sources in his preface!
