High, Just-as-High, and Third
High, Just-as-High, and Third (Old Norse: Hárr [ˈhɑːrː], Jafnhárr [ˈjɑvnˌhɑːrː], and Þriði [ˈθriðe], respectively) are three men that respond to questions posed by Gangleri (described as king Gylfi in disguise) in the Prose Edda book Gylfaginning. The three figures sit upon thrones; High upon the lowest, Just-As-High on the mid-highest, and Third on the highest of the thrones.
[Odin] called himself various other names on his visit to King Geirrod:
- "I call myself [...] Third, [...] High, [... and] Just-as-high"— Snorri Sturlusson, Prose Edda
