In Norse mythology, Forseti is the god of justice. He is the son of the god Balder and his mother is Nanna. He rules in the beautiful palace Glitnir with its pillars of red gold and its roof with inlaid silver, which serves as a court of justice and where all legal disputes are settled. See Myth 12 The Lay of Grimnir.
Although Forseti is one of the twelve leading gods, he is not featured significantly in any of the surviving myths.
He can be compared with the Teutonic god Fosite, who was worshipped on Helgoland a small Island in the North Sea.
