Odin (Old Norse Óðinn) is the most powerful God in Asgard and he is the chief of the Aesir, in Norse mythology. Odin is sometimes called the all-father or the wanderer, he has, in fact, many names, because he has taken many shapes on various occasions. Odin looks like a sorcerer and may have been an inspiration to Gandalf for J.R.R Tolkien’s books Lord of the Ring and the Hobbit.
Odin is associated with healing, death, royalty, wisdom, battle, sorcery, poetry, and the runic alphabet. and he is thought to be “the leader of souls”. The modern word “Wednesday” is named after Odin and it comes from the Germanic word Wotan which means “Odin” so Wednesday is “Odin’s day”. Odin lives in the house called Valaskialf, in this house, Odin has a tall tower and in the top of the tower he has a throne called Hlidskialf, from here Odin can see throughout all the nine worlds. Odin is the grandson of Buri the first Æsir, and he is the son of the half-God, half-giant Bestla and Bor.
