High, Just-as-High, and Third
High, Just-As-High, and Third (Old Norse Hár, Jafnhár, and Þriði, 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
- Anthony Faulkes, translation of: Snorri Sturluson. Edda. London: Everyman, 1995. ISBN 0-460-87616-3.
