Jotunheim is one of the Nine worlds from Norse mythology, the homeland of the Frost Giants, Storm Giants, and Mountain Giants. Joutunheim is the home to the Storm Giants, and the birth place of Loki, the son of Giants, Laufey (father, deceased) and Farbauti (mother). Loki was adopted by Odin after Odin had killed his father as he begged for mercy.
Situated on the middle level of the Norse universe, Jotunheim is separated from Asgard by the river Iving, which never freezes over. It lies in the snowy regions on the outermost shores of the ocean. Mimir's well of wisdom is in Jotunheim, beneath the Midgard root of the ash tree Yggdrasil.
Jotunheim is ruled by Thrym ("uproar"), the feared king of the frost giants. The stronghold of Utgard, the chief city of Jotunheim and the abode of the giants, is ruled by the giant Utgard-Loki. Other strongholds include Gastropnir, home of the giantess Menglad, and Thrymheim ("house of uproar"), mountain stronghold of the giant Thiazi.
