Asaheim in Norse mythology, is the eastern country from which the Asas (q.v.) come. It is doubtful where the same lies. Some designate it as being in ancient Troy, and believe that the Asas emigrated from that place after its destruction. Others maintain that Asaheim lay on the river Don. Asaheim must not be confounded with Asgard. The latter is the palace in which the Northern gods and goddesses live until the end of the world.
