In Norse mythology, the megingjörð (Old Norse: "power-belt") is a magic belt worn by the god Thor. According to the Prose Edda, the belt is one of Thor's three main possessions, along with the hammer Mjölnir and the iron glove Járngreipr. When worn, the belt is described as doubling Thor's already prodigious strength.
