Greetings adventurers:

In this edition of the series about nordic mythology, we are going to talk about Yggdrasil, the tree of life.

Yggdrasil is an evergreen ash: the tree of life or ash of the universo in nordic mythology. Its roots and branches keep the different mythological worlds joined: Asgard, Midgard, Helheim, Niflheim, Muspellheim, Svartalfheim, Alfheim, Vanaheim and Jötunheim. The fountain which fills the well of knowledge, guarded by Mímir, flows from its roots.

At the feet of the tree is the god Heimdall, who is in charge of protecting it from the attacks of the dragon Níðhöggr and a multitude of worms which tried to rot its roots and defeat the gods which it represented. In addition, it counted with the help of nornas, who took care of it by watering it with wáter from the well of Urd. There was a bridge which joined the Yggdrasil with the dwelling of the gods, known as the Bifröst. All the gods used this rainbow bridge to enter Midgard.

Yggdrasil oozes honey and shelters a nameless Eagle which has a hawk named Veðrfölnir between its eyes, a squirrel named Ratatösk, a dragon named Níðhöggr and four deer, Dáinn, Dvalin, Duneyrr and Duraþrór.

Best regards,

The Ragnarök Online Team
