Odin (Woden), d. 055 BC
Father: Frithuwald (Bor)
He may have had two more children, Saeming and Yngvi by another wife, Skade Tjatsesdottir.
Spouse: Frigg (Frígídá)
The Frigg who was the wife of Odin (Woden) is often confused with the Frigg who was the wife of Wettin, and daughter of Cadwalladr. Wettin and his wife Frigg lived in the mid-fourth century AD, while Odin and his wife Frigg lived in the early to mid first century BC. Some of the lineages attributed to Odin are probably those of Wettin.
Father: Frealaf (Fríallaf)
He is shown in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, but not in the Prose Edda.

Father: Godwulf (Gudólfr)
Father: Geata (Ját)
Father: Beaw (Bjáf)
He is shown in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles but not in Prose Edda.
Father: Sceldwa (Skjöld)
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicles shows him as a grandson of the Biblical Noah. The Prose Edda continues the lineage.
Father: Trór (Thor)
Mother: Síbil (Sif)
He was fostered in Thrace by a certain war-duke called Lóríkus. He was goodly to look at with hair fairer than gold. When he was twelve, he was so strong he could lift ten bear skins. He killed his foster father and mother (Lora) and took the kingdom of Thrace. He then traveled the earth, it is claimed, killing giants, dragons and many beasts. He met his wife in the North where she was a prophetess. (Notice how this story is a less exagerated version of the same story told about the Thor of Norse mythology in the time of Trór's descendent, Odin.)
Spouse: Síbil (Sif)
He became king of the Trojans after the war with the Greeks. He may have been the king of Ethiopia before then. Ethiopia is one of the nations listed in the Iliad as coming to the aid of King Priam.
Tjatse "the Giant" Allvaldesson
The sagas claim that Tjatse was killed by the Vanir for the kidnapping of Idunn, who was lured into the forest with her apples of youth by Loki. His daughter Skadi went to Asgard with the intent of avenging her father. She was placated, though, and was allowed to choose a husband from among the Vanir, but she had to choose by looking only at their feet. She chose Njord, though she thought they were the feet of Baeldaeg (Balder). She lived with Njord for a time, but claimed she could not sleep at his home of Noatun, which is by the sea, due to the screeching of the seagulls. She moved back to Trymheim, in the mountains, married Odin (Woden), and gave birth to several sons. Later she married Ullr. It is said she went about on skis hunting game with her bow and arrows.Spouse: Orboda ugift
Ovaldi "the Giant", King od Trymheim
It was said that Ovaldi had a great deal of gold and after his death his sons divided it among themselves by taking mouthfuls in turn. In the sagas the phrase "speech of Tjatse (or Gangr or Idi)" is a kenning for gold.
It should be noted that most of the people at this time are considered mythical or purely fictional. I am of the opinion that myths and legends are based on fact, and that the embellishment at later times does not render the people themselves unreal.
