The Aesir were one of the people of Nordheim during the Hyborian Age. Along with the Vanir, they formed the Nordheimr.

They were typified by blue eyes and blond hair.[1]

History

Origins

The Aesir were probably descendants of the people of the pre-Cataclysmic kingdom of Thule,[2] as were the Aesir.[3][4]

Hyborian Age

2,500 years after the Lesser Cataclysm, the Nordics (Aesir and Vanir) drove all the remaining Hyborian tribes out of all the snow-countries, save for Hyperborea. Their land was known as Nordheim,[5] the Vanir living in Vanaheim, the western part of it.[6]

500 years after the Age of Conan, the north was the theater of constant bickering between the Cimmerians, the Bossonians, the Picts and the Nordheimr.[7]
