Thor (Old Norse: Þórr) is the red-haired and bearded god of thunder and war in Norse Mythology and more generally Germanic mythology (Old English: Þunor, Old Dutch and Old High German: Donar, from Proto-Germanic *Þunraz).

Thor is the son of Odin and Jörd. During Ragnarök, Thor and Jörmungandr kill each other.

Thor's name was given to Thursday and he rides a chariot pulled by goats. Thor has a hammer called (Mjollnir) which was made by the dwarfs. When Thor throws his hammer it comes back to him. Thor was one of the Vikings favorite gods. Thunder was believed to be Thor riding his chariot through the sky and lightning was his thrown hammer.


Thor was the god who was tasked with defeating all monsters that threated mankind, even the Midgard Serpent. The Midgard Serpent. This serpent was the ultimate challenge of the gods and threated to destroy them and Middle Earth (where people lived). Only Thor, with his mighty hammer could stop the Midgard Serpant. It is told that this Serpent grows and grows each day until finally in thousands of years he will wrap around the tree of the Earth and defeat both the gods and humans.
