Bergelmer in Norse mythology, was the son of Aurgelmer, a powerful mountain giant. Long before the creation of the world this mighty god lived, until the earth was overflooded by Ymer's blood, and the entire Rhimthusian generation perished. He alone saved himself in a boat, and with his wife subsequently peopled the earth again. The analogies with Noah are obvious. SEE FLOOD.
