MYTHOLOGY

Muspelheim is one of the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology. It has been described as a hot and glowing land of fire, home to the fire giants and guarded by the jotunn Surtr with his flaming sword. Muspelheim has a significant role in both the creation of the world and its ultimate end. In the sagas, fire from Muspelheim and ice from Niflheim meet in the middle of the void of Ginnungagap and forge the giant Ymir and the world. When the fire giant Surtr and his sons ride over the northern light bridge, Bivrost, it will be the end of days, or as it is called in the old sagas; Ragnarok:

In the midst of this clash and din the heavens are rent in twain,
and the sons of Muspell 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.
