Hrungnir

Norse - A giant. After a race in the sky on his horse Gullfaxi with Odin riding Sleipnir, he was entertained by the gods in Valhalla. He got drunk and boasted he would take over the whole of Asgard, including Sif, the wife of Thor. Thor fought a duel with Hrungnir who was assisted by a nine-mile long monster, Mokerkialfi. His own squire, Thialfi, killed the monster and Thor killed Hrungnir. Also commonly referred to as Hrungnir, Hrungner or Hrungner.
