In Norse mythology, Yggdrasil from Old Norse Yggdrasill, pronounced is an immense tree that is central in Norse cosmology, in connection to which the nine worlds exist.
Yggdrasil is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson. In both sources, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that is central and considered very holy. The gods go to Yggdrasil daily to assemble at their things. The branches of Yggdrasil extend far into the heavens, and the tree is supported by three roots that extend far away into other locations; one to the well UrÃ°arbrunnr in the heavens, one to the spring Hvergelmir, and another to the well MÃmisbrunnr. Creatures live within Yggdrasil, including the wyrm (dragon) NÃÃ°hÃ¶ggr, an unnamed eagle, and the stags DÃ¡inn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and DuraÃ¾rÃ³r.
Conflicting scholarly theories have been proposed about the etymology of the name Yggdrasill, the possibility that the tree is of another species than ash, the relation to tree lore and to Eurasian shamanic lore, the possible relation to the trees MÃmameiÃ°r and LÃ¦raÃ°r, HoddmÃmis holt, the sacred tree at Uppsala, and the fate of Yggdrasil during the events of RagnarÃ¶k.
In Norse mythology, MjÃ¶lnir (Old Norse: MjÇ«llnir) is the hammer of Thor, a major Norse god associated with thunder. MjÃ¶lnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains.In his account of Norse mythology, Snorri Sturluson relates how the hammer was made by the dwarven brothers Sindri and Brokkr, and how its characteristically short handle was due to a mishap during its manufacture.
