Howard, Robert E.

Gods of the North (1934)


"Gods of the North" aka The Frost Giant's Daughter or The Frost King's Daughter is one of the original short stories about Conan the Cimmerian. It is, arguably, the earliest chronological story by Robert E. Howard in terms of Conan's life.

The brief tale is set in the pseudo-historical Hyborian Age and details Conan pursuing a spectral nymph across the frozen snows of Nordheim, geographically situated north of Conan's homeland, Cimmeria. Conan is depicted as a youthful Cimmerian mercenary traveling among the golden-haired Aesir in a war party.
