In Norse Mythology, Forseti is the god of justice and the son of Balder and Nanna. In the Poetic Edda, he is called "the god that stills all strife". He resides in Giltnir, a palace which serves as a court of justice with a roof of silver supported by pillars of gold, and spends his days settling the differences of both men and gods. It is said that he is so eloquent and persuasive that he has never failed to reconcile even the most bitter enemies and has never been accused of being unfair. Since his attribute is a battleaxe, it is thought that he could be a variation of Thor.

Forseti means "presiding one" and it is thought that Forsetland, a city near Oslo, Norway, is named after him.
