Appeared in Thor
Thor: Ragnarok

The Casket of Ancient Winters is an artifact from the realm of the Frost Giants and a powerful and deadly weapon.



In 965 A.D., Laufey used the power of the Casket to enslave Earth, but he was defeated in battle by Odin, and the relic was taken by the Asgardians and brought to Asgard, where it was kept in Odin's weaponry along many other powerful relics.

In the late 2000's, a party of Frost Giants, with the aid of Loki, tried to steal the Casket but were vaporized by The Destroyer. When Loki discovers his origins as Laufey's son, he takes the Casket for himself; once gained the throne of Asgard, he uses the power of the Casket to freeze Heimdall, who was opposing him as a ruler. Loki seemed to access its power to freeze the Bifrost Bridge in attempt to destroy Jotunheim. It is unclear what became of the Casket after Loki fell from the bridge.

Thor: Ragnarok

Hela claimed that the Casket of Ancient Winters is weak when she passed it in Odin's Trophy Room.

Powers and Abilities

The casket is powered by an apparently limitless supply of magical energy. When opened, it releases powerful arctic weather that is capable of freezing anything in its path, killing humans and immobilizing Asgardians.
