Halls of the Norse Gods

This post is a somewhat continuation of the “Nine realms of Norse Mythology”, where we will take a closer look at who lives where, together with examples taken from old Norse tales. Follow along to Odin’s gigantic Valhalla, Ægir’s glistening golden hall and Tjasse’s Trymheim. Worth keeping in mind is that there also are examples of these tales hinted in archaeological artefacts, which makes them all more exciting.

    I could be wrong but every version of Ratatosk I’ve known had depicted him as provoking Nidhögg and the Eagle with untrue insults.That’s why the Eagle flaps at the top of the tree, trying to uproot it, and Nidhögg gnaws the roots.They’re in a competition to see who can kill the tree first.Like I said, that’s just the versions I’ve heard and this could just be another of the story.
