My theme for the “A to Z Challenge” is World Mythology.
My A to Z posts will run concurrently with my usual posts. I hope they spark your curiosity. I find it fascinating how so many stories crossed the boundaries of countries and even oceans.
R is for Ragnarok, the Norse Armageddon
Christianity has the four horseman of the apocalypse and Armageddon. Norse mythology has Ragnarok.
It is a series of events set in the future that bring about the death of the major figures in their mythology including Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr and Loki and most of the people on earth. After a battle and a series of natural disasters the world becomes submersed in water.
But the legend doesn’t stop there. The world is repopulated by two human survivors who live in an eternal winter.
