The Blades of the Fallen Prince,  [Frostreaper] and  [Icebringer], are the artifacts used by frost death knights in World of Warcraft: Legion.

Source

The Blades of the Fallen Prince are obtained from N Death knight [98] The Call of Icecrown.

Background

Crafted by the Burning Legion to corrupt the world of Azeroth, the soul-stealing runeblade Frostmourne was shattered by Ashbringer atop Icecrown Citadel. Countless souls were freed from the broken blade, but others were not so fortunate. Today the shards of Frostmourne can be recrafted and infused with even more power. However, the spirits still trapped within must first be subdued and bent to the wielder's will.[1]

Trivia

  • At the Gamescom 2015 event, the twin blades were introduced as Icebringer and Soulreaper. When the Artifact previews were revealed on the main World of Warcraft website on the first day of BlizzCon 2015, Soulreaper was changed to Frostreaper.
  • Originally the offhand blade was called Frostreaper and the main hand was Icebringer.
