About Head of Mímir

According to Norse mythology, the creature Mímir was the wisest of all beings and the guardian of the well of knowledge. At the conclusion of the Æsir–Vanir War, in a hostage-exchange gone wrong, Mímir was beheaded by the Vanir. But Odin,  king of the gods, was able to magically keep Mímir’s head alive. Thus Mímir became Odin’s counsellor.
