Othila

Othila (oath-awe-law) is the seventh rune of the third aett, and the twenty-third rune overall. It represents inherited land, or inheritance. There is a sense of birthright, community, kinship, what you are entitled to, and nobility.

Othila is the gift of Ing – a combination of Ingwaz with Gebo, but the inherited gift is generall a material sense, rather than the DNA relationship of Ingwaz.

Othila reminds you to choose your partner wisely. Consider loyalty to your clansmen and tribe.

In the Asatru tradition, this rune is often considered to come last, because the two humans that survive Ragnarok inherit the land. In the Valkyrie tradition, Dagaz is last.
