(The) of Scandinavian mythology were “Har” (the Mighty),
the “Like-Mighty,” and the
“Third Person,” who sat on three thrones above the rainbow. Then
came the “AElig;sir,” of which Odin was chief, who lived in Asgard
(between the rainbow and earth); next come the “Vanir,” or gods of the
ocean, air, and clouds, of which deities Niord was chief.
