Ygg is a legendary demon tree who fed on human flesh. According to legend, the Grey King carved the first longship from Ygg's hard pale wood.[1] It may be that the legend of Ygg was inspired by a weirwood tree, as the First Men of old hung the entrails of the condemned in the branches of heart trees.[2]
