Ninlil


Ninlil: Sumero-Babylonian goddess of heaven, earth and air.

Ninlil is an important Mesopotamian goddess revered by most of the Mesopotamian tribes. The Sumerians say that she is the consort of Enlil, a deity of destiny and a grain goddess.

The wind god Enlil saw Ninlil bathing in a canal and raped her and impregnated her. Enlil was banished to the Underworld for his crime and Ninlil decided to follow him. In the course of their journey Enlil took three different shapes and each time ravaged and impregnated her.
