Asʹgard

.

The fortress of the Asir or the Northern gods, the Olympos of Scaudinaʹvian mythology. It is said to be situated in the centre of the universe, and accessible only by the rainbow-bridge (Bifrost). The word As means a “god,” and gard an “enclosure,” our “yard.” Odin was priest of Asgard before he migrated to the Lake Logur or Mœlar Sea.
