HLIDSKIALF


HLIDSKIALF LIDSKJALF High Seat odin's throne in the high tower of his palace, valaskialf, in asgard, the home of the gods. From here Odin could see all that occurred in the nine worlds. He had his ravens, hugin and munin, to help him, and the wolves geri and freki to keep him company. No one but Odin was allowed to sit on Hlidskialf with the exception of his wife frigg. The god frey, though, once disobeyed the rules. From the high perch he spotted the jotun maid gerda and fell in love with her.
