Further Information

Norse Mythology

  • Hyrrokkin is the name of a jǫtunn. She was called upon by the gods when they were unsuccessful in launching Baldr's funeral ship. She came riding on a wolf and had poisonous snakes as harness. Hyrrokkin went to the prow of the ship and pushed it away at the first attempt so that sparks flew up from the rollers and all the lands quaked. Þórr became angry and took hold of his hammer, and he would have smashed in her skull, had not all the other gods begged him to have mercy on her. [1]
