This is the modern version of the hammer “Mjölnir” of the Norse god “Thor” known from several myths and movies.
In Norse mythology Thor or Donar is the God of Clouds, Thunder and Fertility and like all other Aesir he died during the Ragnarök. Only Odin stood above him and more feared. He was the son of the Aesir Odin and the human Jörd and therefore the blood of Asgard and Midgard flows through him. Thor’s realm in Asgard is called Thrudvangr. There he lived with his wife Sif in the biggest palace of Asgard, “Bilskirnir”.
Thor’s most famous weapon was his divine hammer “Mjölnir” that was the source of his power. He also owned the belt “Megingjörð” that increased his power even more. His trademark though was the thunder that announced his arrival when he used his goat carried chariot. There are many legends about his heroic deeds like his first fight against the Midgard Serpent, his feud with the ice giants or how he and Loki used a trick to get his stolen hammer Mjölnir back from Trym, the giant.
Like all Aesir Thor found his end during the Ragnarök, the Fate of The Gods. He fought against the Midgard Serpent and won but then he fell into its venom which eventually killed him.
