To Norse Places
A painting of Frederic Edwin Church, currently at Detroit Institute of Arts Date1862
Muspelheim ("Flame land"), also called Múspell, is a realm of fire. This realm is one of the Nine Worlds and it is home to the Fire-Giants or the Sons of Muspell, and Surtr, their ruler. It is fire; and the land to the North, Niflheim, is ice. The two mixed and created water from the melting ice in Ginnungagap.
According to the Ragnarök the sons of Muspel will break the Bifröst bridge, signaling the end of times:
|In the midst of this clash and din the heavens are rent in twain, and the sons of Muspel come riding through the opening. Surtr rides first, and before him and after him flames burning fire. He has a very good sword, which shines brighter than the sun. As they ride over Bifrost it breaks to pieces, as has before been stated. The sons of Muspel direct their course to the plain which is called Vigrid.... The sons of Muspel have there effulgent bands alone by themselves.|
