Trivia

When Marco ilsø (Hvitserk) and Alex Høgh Andersen (Ivar) were cast in the series they weren't allowed to tell anyone, so they wrote to each other that they didn't get the role. See more »

Goofs

Athelstan is often seen with a cloak held together by strings and wearing a pin on the coat. The purpose of this pin is actually to hold a cloak together so wearing it a coat with strings is superfluous. See more »

Quotes

Ragnar Lothbrok: So have you returned to your faith, renounced ours?
Athelstan: I wish it was so simple. In the gentle fall of rain from Heaven I hear my God. But in the thunder I still hear Thor. That is my agony.
Ragnar Lothbrok: I hope that some day our Gods can become friends.

Good show
10 March 2013 | by pkelly12002See all my reviews

There are some Hollywood liberties taken during the show this is to be expected it is a show. If you made a show about everyday life during the vikings time most would be dull and not exciting it is not like they went to battle everyday. The show has a lot of historical basis with some liberties taken to liven the show up. It is well produced and has great cinematography . If , you are however looking for a straight fact based view on vikings go to the library and pull anthropology research journals out. For everyone else if you like battles with historical styles, understandings of how they navigated and views on the social structure of the vikings then you will get a understanding. You will also see how laws and ethics were for the vikings so yes there is some historical accuracy to the show . All in all if you want entertainment mixed with history it is a great show.
