Álfröðull (Old Norse "elf-beam"[1] or "elf-disc"[2]) is a term and common kenning in Norse mythology. It is ambiguous, referring both to the rider (the sun herself) and to the sun-chariot of the sun goddess Sól. Álfröðull is pulled by two horses, Árvakr and Alsviðr. The chariot is pursued by the wolf Sköll. According to Norse mythology, prior to Ragnarök, Álfröðull will give birth to a daughter and then be eaten by the wolf, but the daughter will take her place.
