In Norse myth, there was once a giant named Mundilfari who was married to Glaur. Their children were so beautiful that he named his son Mani (moon) and his daughter Sol (sun). The gods were angered at such daring. They took both children and placed them in the sky to guide the chariots of the sun and the moon
