Ancestors of modern Scandinavians at the mention of the name of this creature began to shake in fear, whispering to myself the prayers. What is this monster? Friends, this is a Troll!


This is a fairy-tale characters, presented in different ways in different era. For example, modern fiction has given these beings repelling qualities: they are very huge, terribly ugly, brainless.
In addition, they are constantly concerned about the same problem: how to fill its insatiable maw and fell soundly back to sleep. And Scandinavian folklore presents us with the trolls more than the required quality. Troll - a creature endowed with great physical strength and supernatural abilities! But where is the truth?

How did they look?

Friends, but the truth in this matter we are not even syschem day and with a bright fire! After all, if you believe the ancient legends, these creatures looked completely different, with each of the descriptions has a right to exist: some say that it is a husky the size of a whole mountain, while others claim that the Troll is a small creature with a tail, and slipped into a pocket of clothing (e.g., sniff).

Interestingly, in the heads of trolls but the hair grew dirtiest: moss and trees! According to legend, the number of goals in those or other trolls it was different: one, five, ten... I thought that the more goals - the older, wiser, and more experienced than this creature. The Troll's tongue was so long that it was possible to catch worthless fellows, fled in different directions at the sight of these nightmarish creatures! Many trolls simply adored thus to grab and alive to devour their prey.

Some trolls liked to live as a hermit, taking up the whole mountain, while others created their own families together in tribes. Some legends say that our heroes could form a whole Kingdom with a distinct hierarchy and a vertical power. Maybe famous Shrek - this is an example of such a "state" lifestyles of the trolls, despite the fact that he was the Orc.

What else do we know about them?

And here's what some legends say that a Troll is not the enemy of mankind! They are not always killed and devoured people. Very often these creatures are just enough women, carried them to my cave, transforming into a slave. The poor thing had to put up with eternal darkness and dampness of the underground lair of the Troll. She was there in the role of a cook: the trolls brought human pieces of meat and bones, and their slaves had to cook them a hearty meal.

If a woman was beautiful, it was often the wife of a male Troll. It was rubbing some magic potion that turns her into a monster: her face was getting dark, covered with wrinkles, his nose was swollen, and the skin covered with hair.
