the dictionary of norse mythology


DRAGON A mythical beast, usually represented as a large, winged, fire-breathing reptile similar to a crocodile or a serpent. In Norse myth the dragon nithog feeds on the root of the World Tree, yggdrasil. In Norse and Germanic legend, from which Norse mythology evolved, the dragon fafnir guards his ill-gotten treasure and is eventually slain by the young hero sigurd.
