MEGINGJARDIR


MEGINGJARDIR MEGINGJORD, MEGIN-GIORD, MEGINGARDER Power Belt The name snorri sturluson gave to the god thor's magic belt. When the thunder god fastens it on, his already great powers become twice as strong. Megingjardir was one of three of Thor's great treasures, which included his mighty hammer, mjollnir, and iron gloves. The belt is described in older Norse sagas, but only Snorri calls it Megingjardir.
