Thor died during the end of the world, the so-called Ragnarok , when he fought against the Midgard serpent.

One of the most outstanding stories of Thor is the theft of his hammer and the consequent death of the giants. One morning when he awoke he saw that his hammer (Hammer of Thor) did not appear . At that moment he thought it had been his brother Loki. He assured her that the giants would know who the thief had been , so she donned Freya’s feather suit and flew into the realm of the giants.

There he discovered that the one who had stolen it had been Thrym, the king himself . In exchange for returning the hammer he demanded the hand of the goddess Freya . Thor accepted the deal and together with Loki prepared a deception. Thor would disguise himself as Freya .

During the celebrations that were organized to honor the arrival of Freya, Thor was discovered before Thrym and began to attack all the giants with his hammer (Hammer of Thor) accompanied by thunder and lightning. Thus he killed King Thrym and the rest of the kingdom’s giants.
