Baldr was a beloved son of Odin and Frigg, Baldr was adored by all. But he started to have the most frightful of nightmares of his death. His mother petitioned an oath from every creature, object, and force that they would never harm Baldr, everything except for mistletoe. She thought it too small to damage her son and therefore didn’t get its oath.
Loki, jealous of Baldr tricked Hod, Baldr’s blind twin brother to throw the mistletoe at him, and this killed Baldr, sending him to Hel.
Odin sent another of his sons to bargain with the Goddess to let Baldr return to the land of the living. She agreed, but there was a condition that had to be met. Everything in the world had to weep for him. And they did. All except Loki who had disguised himself as the witch Thokk.
And so Baldr remained in Helheim.
