Muspelheim: Norse Kingdom of Fire

As the primordial kingdom of fire, he contributed to the creation of the world.

According to Snorri, Surtr is a fire giant living in this kingdom and will emerge in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods, to destroy Asgard and everything else.

Today's scholars disagree with Snorri's interpretation and believe that Muspell was originally a giant of a world of fire whose only function in the original Norse mythology was the role he would play in Ragnarok.
