Rage Of The Norsemen
Mimir was as a wise Aesir being, taken hostage by the Vanir during the wars with the Aesir. Having lost this war the Vanir took their anger out upon Mimir and cut off his head and sent it to Odhinn as a symbol of their disgust and frustration. Odhinn preserved the head, placing it in the well of Midgard so Mimir’s knowledge would not be lost. Mimir’s seven sons are imprisoned in Hell, where they wait to fight in the last battle.
