Is Bogense the Home of the Gods?

If one is to believe the historians from the 18th century, then Bogense is the home of the gods. It is meant that the name of the city comes from Odin's son Bo, whom he had with the Russian princess Rind. He who was to avenge Balder at Ragnarok. Therefore, other – slightly more colorful sources from this time – would also mean that it is from exactly Bogense's, Gyldensten's or Harridslevgaard's wetlands that Balder's pyre, Ringhorne, was sent out and sent to Hel.
