In Norse cosmology, Yggdrasil is an immense ash tree that connects the nine worlds, each representing different realms of the cosmos. The sacred tree's roots run deep into these nine worlds themselves, symbolizing the interconnectedness of all life.

Yggdrasil's Roots and the Nine Worlds

Yggdrasil's roots run deep into three wells beneath the tree, each associated with the tree's three main roots.

Four stags, named Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr, and the dragon Duraþrór, dwell among the branches, grazing on the tree's leaves. The dragon Nidhogg gnaws at Yggdrasil's roots, constantly threatening the tree's stability.

Norns: The Guardians of Fate

The three Norns, Urðr, Verðandi, and Skuld, are female beings that govern the fate of gods and men in Norse mythology. They reside in three norns, by the well of fate, Urðarbrunnr, beneath Yggdrasil

After nine long nights, Odin fell from the tree and grasped the runes, symbols of knowledge and power.
