Hrimthursar which translates as "Rime-Giants" were a primal race of giants. They were descended from giant Ymir. When the gods Odin, Ve, and Vili killed the primal giant, his floating blood caused a great tide and the Rime-Giants were drowned, except a few, including Ymir's descendant Bergelmir and his wife.[citation needed]

After the death of his grandfather, Bergelmir and his wife lived in Jotunheim and became the ancestors of the Jötunn (Frost Giants).[citation needed]


Representatives: Kai-Ra; Glump; Bergelmir[citation needed]
