Trivia

Costumes were handled by Spanish costuming house Sastreria Cornejo. Many of the costumes were pooled from their other projects such as Macbeth (2015), Game of Thrones (2011), Tristan + Isolde (2006), Season of the Witch (2011) and Marco Polo (2014). See more »

Goofs

The events of Vikings are set in the 9th century. Crossbows are used extensively by the Franks in several episodes, but at this time the crossbow appear to have largely fallen out of use as a war weapon. Evidence of their use in battle is not apparent again until the 947 AD siege of Senlis.

Additionally, crossbows are widely known as being incredibly difficult to span (cock) and mechanical assistance was commonly used. The French crossbow archers can be seen spanning the bows with minimal effort, and maintaining an impressive rate of fire. See more »

Quotes

Floki: Who needs a reason for betrayal? One must always think the worst Ragnar, even of your own kin. That way, you avoid too much disappointment in life.
