Jotunheim or Utgard: The Norse World of Giants

reading - words

One of the nine world, the territory of Giants, cold and stone.

Located on the same level as Midgard, in the middle of the Universe,
Jotunheim is separated from Asgard by the river Iving which never freezes.

This territory extends from the snowy regions to the ocean shore.

What lives in Jotunheim?

It is governed by Thrym (The-Tumult), the terrifying King of the Cold Giants.

The stronghold of Utgard is the capital of Jotunheim and the home of its sovereign, the Utgard Giant (Loki).

The other citadels are Gastropnir, home of the Menglad Giant; Tryheim, the home of the Menglad Giant; and the
"Demeure-du-Tumulte"; and the mountainous city of the Giant Thiazi (or Thiassi).

Jotunheim is an inhospitable place near the North Pole and this desert of ice is
continuously swept by fogs, blizzards and roaring winds
sent by the giants to burn the spring buds.

Creation of Jotuheim
