Loki mentioned the Realm to Thor as they were discussing their previous adventures as they waited for Thor's coronation ceremony. Loki says it was an example of a rare time Thor was nervous, but Thor corrects him and says it is the rage of battle, as well as crediting himself with fighting through 100 warriors. However, Loki credits himself for helping their friends out of danger.[1]

It was briefly mentioned by Thor when he was first banished to Earth and he tried to figure out to which realm he had been sent. [1]

It was again briefly mentioned by Thor when he reported that Nornheim, in addition to Ria, had been secured following the destruction of the Bifrost Bridge.[2]


  • In the non-canon video game Thor: God of Thunder, Nornheim was once the home to the Rock Trolls before they were banished to Vanaheim.[3]
  • In Norse mythology, Nornheim, or Urðarbrunnr, is a section of Asgard and the home of the Norns, three old wise sisters. Every day, the gods traveled over the Bifrost Bridge to their meeting place in Urdarbrunnr. It along with two more wells nourishes Yggdrasil.
