Jotunheim is the land of the giants, part of the Nine Kingdoms. It is also the world of the ice giants. In English, “giants” translates to “giants” and to “ otun” or “Iotun” in the Nordic world.
History and significance of the Jotunheim Kingdom
Jotunheim represents a huge wilderness encircling a modern people. Jotunheim is also called "Utgard". This other name regards the realm as a dominant one that brings up the innangard and the utangard. Both of these concepts evoke psychogeography through images of agricultural land use.
Innangard is defined as the space within the enclosure, while Utangard means outside the enclosure. Innangard is characterized by an advanced, civilized and disciplined state of mind, while utangard is tyrannical and savage.
In Old Norse, Jotunheim translates to Jotenheimr.
In the French dictionary, Jotunheim is synonymous with the home of giants in the northeast of Asgard.
The leader of the Jotunheim Ice Giants is Laufey, who is also Loki's father. Millions of years ago, the Frost Giants and Loki still intended to fight a battle between Jotunheim and King Odin. Thor had allowed Laufey to enter the territory of Asgard. Laufey was just waiting for his march to victory thanks to the support of Thor. Yet another battle has erupted in the territory of Jotunheim. This battle between Laufey and Odin marks the victory of King Odin. If you are looking for the summary of this war story, you can find it on the Marvel World Wiki or the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The riches of Jotunheim
Jotunheim is noted for its wealth of stone. He has 33 Ymir's Bloodstones, used as an offering to Ymir on the "Altar of Ymir". Making an offering earns you 5 skill points.
The house of giants
The dwellings of the giants described in the Eddas are characterized by their simplicity and their location in the heart of nature. Their home resembles dense forests, wild landscapes and mountains. These different kinds of dwellings allow the Norse pagans to judge Jotunheim as invisible.
Eddas is a kind of educational book reflecting Norse mythology.
How does the Germanic pre-Christian cosmology present itself?
In the world of Germanic pre-Christian cosmology, we see Asgard and Midgard. Asgard means "The enclosure of the Aesir Deities" while Midgard means "The enclosure in the middle". Asgard is a divine reference of the Innangard. Midgard is only a realm of men and the environment since it is located in the center of Jotunheim.
