High, Just-As-High, and Third converse with Gangleri
on an 18th-century Icelandic manuscript
Jafnharr ("Equally High" or "Just-as-high") is a member of the "Mysterious Three," those who guard Valhalla in Norse Mythology. These three appear in Gylfaginning in the Prose Edda. They sat on three thrones in Asgard where they answered the questions of Gylfi who sought wisdom. The other two were Harr ("High") and Thridi ("Third"). Each of them was, as it turned out, an incarnation of Odin.
