Isse from the island Od in Denmark

Read the true Story about

Odysseus, the Odyssey and the Iliad

The name Odysseus simply means Isse from Od


The legendary king Odysseus was born circa 1260 BC on the former island Od near Northern Seeland in Danmark – thence his name Odisse – in Greek Od-ysseus.

Od was an island until 1875.

He lives near the islands of Same and Samos – the nowadays twin island Samsø.

Upon his return after the war, he goes ashore near the spring of Arethusa – Tuse river in Od county.

Mount Parnasos (Od. 19-411) is the cliff Fornæs on Djursland.

He has sacked the German city Wismar – called Ismaros in the Odyssey. ......John Larsen


A storm drives him from Troy – that’s the city Bergen on the island of Rügen – to the Phaeakians on Östergarnsholm east of Gotland.

He was a customer at the goddess Circe’s brothel in the fortress Grianan Aileach on the island Aeaea – it is on the island of Éire (Ireland).


– The fortified city of Mycenae lies in Hareskov, Northern Seeland in Danmark where there are found several kilometers of stone-lined earthwork ramparts.

– Troy is the city of Bergen on Rügen in Northern Germany

– Circe’s Palace is located in Derry, Northern Ireland

– Calypso’s cave lies on the Faroe Islands

– Skylla and Charybdis is a maelstrom near Bodø in Northern Norway

– The Trojan horse is the same as Odin's eight-legged horse Sleipnir


In this way, all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place.
