Viking Ragnar Lodbrok is the leading hero of the show’s five seasons who has to walk a hard but important path, with all the happiness and grief that go with it. There are still lots of disputes as to whether this person really existed. But if it wasn’t for him, we would hardly know about the life of the Norsemen. The fans of the popular Irish drama have been watching the leading hero’s progress during three seasons.
From ancient times Vikings were considered to be unique and unusual — and sometimes quite terrifying. Norsemen have made a big contribution in contemporary history and geography. These fearless warriors conquered many lands and discovered many territories and nations. They were the ones who discovered many navigational routes too.
Historical information states that Norsemen tried to capture Paris. This is what the storyline of the seasons 3 and 4 is based on. Although it’s not easy to understand where history ends and legend begins, it will never hinder you from enjoying the captivating drama.
Ragnar Lodbrok, a Viking leader, could batter the Frank armies, but thanks to the treaty of tribute it was avoided. Otherwise, Paris would have vanished long ago.
