Blessed Maria Maddalena Martinengo (5 October 1687 - 27 July 1737), born Margherita Martinengo, was an Italian Roman Catholic professed nun of the order of the Capuchin Poor Clare nuns.
Martinengo devoted her life as a professed religious to the performance of small but humble chores in her time as a Poor Clare nun and was noted for her life of spiritual discernment and devotion to God above all else
on Christmas 1704 she went to the Capuchin Poor Clare convent of Santa Maria della Neve and presented herself to them with the words: "I want to become holy".
On one occasion during her childhood she was in a carriage that six horses ran and she fell out.
Yggdrasil The generally accepted meaning of Old Norse Yggdrasill is "Odin's horse", meaning "gallows". The Poetic Edda poem Hávamál describes how Odin sacrificed himself by hanging from a tree, making this tree Odin's gallows. This tree may have been Yggdrasil. Gallows can be called "the horse of the hanged" and therefore Odin's gallows may have developed into the expression "Odin's horse", which then became the name of the tree According to this interpretation, askr Yggdrasils would mean the world tree upon which "the horse [Odin's horse] of the highest god [Odin] is bound". A third interpretation, presented by F. Detter, is that the name Yggdrasill refers to the word yggr ("terror"), yet not in reference to the Odinic name, and so Yggdrasill would then mean "tree of terror, gallows"
