  • The flick is inspired by the legendary tales of the Norse Viking men and their families of Medieval Scandinavia. It tells of the adventures of the one most talked about Vikings of the time, chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok and his gang, family members and his and his families descendants, as regularly shown in the 13th-century tales, Ragnars exploits of Loðbrókar and Ragnarssona þáttr, as well as in Saxo Grammaticus's 12th-century stories Gesta Danorum. Norse tales were legendary but mostly fictional tales based in the Norse tradition, written down about 150 to 600 years after the events they describe. Inspirations are taken from so called historical artifacrs of the period, such as recollections written of the Viking raid on Lindisfarne depicted in the second episode, or Fadlan's account of the Varangians. The series follows from the start of the Viking Age, marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793. It is as historically accurate as one could expect given the accuracy of Viking accounts from the medieval period it's set in.
