LAEDING


LAEDING The first of three chains with which the gods tried to muzzle and secure the dangerous wolf fenrir. Laeding and the second chain, dromi, were made of ordinary metal, and Fenrir broke them easily. Only the magical third chain, gleipner, was strong enough to hold the wolf. Fenrir remained chained until the time of ragnarok, the battle that brought an end to the world of the gods.
