the dictionary of norse mythology


ELVES In Norse mythology elves do not play an active part they are mentioned only in passing. For example, the Vanir god frey was sometimes called Lord of the Elves. The domain of the elves was Alfheim. When the dwarf alvis cited the 13 most important words in the language, he mentioned the elves only twice. In some accounts of balder's funeral the elves came to mourn, along with the gods, giants, and dwarfs. The Dark Elves, whose domain was svartalfheim, seem to be indistin-guishible from dwarfs.
