THRUD 1 Strength Most likely the daughter of the god thor and his golden-haired wife, sif. Lit-tle is known of Thrud, whose name survives in the kennings, or metaphors, used by Old norse writers of skaldic poetry. In one poem Thor is described as father of Thrud. Scholars speculate from these ken-nings that the giant hrungnir abducted Thrud, for he is referred to in one poem as the thief of Thrud. As Thor's daughter, Thrud would be a half sister of magni and of modi and lora's sister. Some experts also believe she is the person described in the poetic edda as the betrothed to the dwarf alvis.
