Historical Background

The horn of Heimdall in Norse mythology. Heimdall was the god who guarded Bifrost, the rainbow bridge to Valhalla, abode of the Æsir (Norse gods). This horn was used as an instrument. It was hidden beneath Yggdrasil, the world tree and it was prophesized that it would be used to announce the beginning of Ragnarok, the end of the world in Norse mythology. Gjallarhorn means "ringing horn". It would have made more sense for the final cutscene to obtain this to be set in the Boyahda Tree, not the Valley of Sorrows, but Square-Enix doesn't always interpret mythology strictly.
