Loki is referenced in two stanzas in Völuspá hin skamma, found within the poem Hyndluljóð. The first stanza notes that Loki produced “the wolf” with the jötunn Angrboða, that Loki himself gave birth to the horse Sleipnir by the stallion Svaðilfari, and that Loki (referred to as the “brother of Býleistr”) thirdly gave birth to “the worst of all marvels”. This stanza is followed by:

        Loki ate some of the heart, the thought-stone of a woman,
        roasted on a linden-wood fire, he found it half-cooked;
        Lopt was impregnated by a wicked woman,
        from whom every ogress on earth is descended.

===================

So Loki is the mother of all female monsters?
