Gunlod is the troll queen entrusted to guard the Mead of Poetry, which would bestow poetic skills when consumed. Odin, believing poetic skill to be extremely important, devised a plan to sneak into Gunlod’s mountain fortress and take the mead. To accomplish this, he transformed himself into a snake to get into the fortress, then transformed back into a man. He seduced Gunlod and drank mead for three days before leaving. Having drunk the mead, Odin became skilled in poetry.
