Who are the Giants?

The giants and giantesses also called Jotuns or Jötunns in Norse mythology are the first living beings, and the first of these giants was a giant called Ymir, and it is from the corpse of Ymir the world created. A Jotun is a giant with superhuman strength who lives in their the land of Jotunheim, which is one of the nine worlds in Norse mythology. Jotunheim is mostly made of rocks, mountains, wilderness and dense forests. The giants mostly lives from the fish in the water, and the animals from the dense forests, because there is no fertile land.
