Odin, God of Gods

Odin ruled a group of deities in Norse mythology called the Aesir. God of battle, wisdom, magic, and poetry, his name means "fury." Odin was married to Frigg, the guardian of marriage.
Odin spanned the history of the Norse mythic world from creation to destruction. Before the world existed, he and his two younger brothers, Vili and Ve, killed the primal frost giant Ymir. They used Ymir's bones, blood, and flesh to form the universe. Odin arranged the heavens for the gods, the middle world for humans and dwarfs, and the underworld for the dead. He then created the first man and woman from an ash tree and an elm tree.

Among the deities said to have been Odin's children were Balder and Thor*. Odinóthe favorite deity of princes, nobles, and warriorsócame to be seen as the supreme Norse god, the one to whom the other deities turned for help and advice. He ruled them from his palace Valhalla in the heavenly realm called Asgard.

As the god of war, Odin watched over warriors who fell in battle. Valkyries carried the fallen ones straight to Valhalla.

Odin was credited with great wisdom, including knowledge of magic and divination. He had paid a high price for this gift, however, giving one of his eyes in exchange for a drink from the well of Mimir. The waters of this well, which seeped from among the roots of the World Tree Yggdrasill, contained great wisdom. Another myth says that Odin stabbed himself with his magical spear, called Gungnir, and hung from Yggdrasill for nine days and nights in a living death. This self-sacrifice gave him knowledge of the runes, the Norse symbols used for writing and fortune-telling. Yet although Odin was wise, he could also be sly and treacherous. It was not unusual, for example, for him to break his word or to turn people against each other to start conflicts.
