    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Heimdall is a god in the Norse pantheon, most well-known for his task to announce the coming of Ragnarok by sounding his horn, which will be heard across all worlds. He is one of the better-known Norse gods, who is mentioned in a number of literary sources, including the [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Poetic Edda [/font]and the [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Prose Edda [/font]. Heimdall is referred to as the ‘watchman of the gods’, and he is believed to dwell at the entry of Asgard, the home of the Aesir, where he stands guard over Bifrost, the rainbow bridge.[/font]
    [font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Heimdall’s horn, known as Gjallarhorn (‘yelling horn’, or ‘loud sounding horn’), will be sounded before the events of the Ragnarok begin.[/font]
