They target Europe's main trading center, where the Frisian king Aldigisl rules.Written by
Dorestad is in the center of the Netherlands, but the movie makes it looks like it is near the sea. The battle for Dorestad is won by diverting the Frankisch cavalry to the sea and having them drown in the upcoming tide. This would have been a two day journey. One historian however has controversially placed Dorestad at the current location of Audruicq, near the French coast. See more »

Had high expectations but the script ruined it. Acting wasn't too bad but because of the script it seemed funny some times. However the scenery and costumes were great.Overall a missed opportunity to make it a classic.
