Goddess Gunnlod

 



Gunnlod is a goddess of poetry in Norse mythology.

Gunnlod, a giantess, is the custodian of Odrerir, the poetic mead.

The brew was kept in three cauldrons concealed in the bowels of the soil, which symbolized Gunnlod's womb.

Odin seduced her for three days and three nights, stealing her virginity and the mead.

Odin was changed into a supreme deity by Gunnlod's mead, or wise blood, which carried the powers of immortality and wizardry.
