"Germanic mythology is continued after the Twilight of the Gods"

TRUE
The oldest version of the Edda calls it "Ragnarök" (the fate of the gods), the Germanic gods apocalyptic battle. Only in the newer versions of the Edda is found as "Ragnarökr" (twilight of the gods). But while in this war perish all the gods and supernatural beings - the wolf Fenris and the Midgard serpent - occurs a new peaceful world. In terms of gods, reappears Baldur (peaceful god of spring) and Hödur, Baldur's blind brother, killed by accident, in addition, there appear Wali that he was necessary for the other to kill the Hödur, as well as Widar (a mute god of the forest).
