They seem like scattered sharp blades on the battlefield. They born to kill, rape and invade other lands. Their gods gave them the strength of savageness that other gods cannot offer. so many Christians, Arabs, and other peoples were brutally murdered by their ax. Many centuries before now the world was threatened by Vikings raids. They had no mercy, slaughtered innocents and put them into slavery. These are the real stories about Vikings from history. Vikings series based on this history and created by Michael Hirst. The depth of their killing and voice of scream are truly shown on the screen. This series was released on March 3, 2013, in the history channel.
There are many legends are raised from Vikings and become famous for their raids and killing. Ragnar Lothbrok was the most famous Viking and a true leader to his people. He invaded parts of England, France, and many other countries, also his war strategies made him praised by his enemies too. In series, Fimmel Travis plays the role of Ragnar Lothbrok and his extraordinary acting made Ragnar true to eyes. Ragnar made settlements in many countries and made them surrender with fear of blood. He loves his sons as same as they love him back and that was the only weakness for him.
The most realistic presentation and marvelous camera works give us a remarkable visual experience. The wildness and beauty of Scandinavia were fresh to watch. Blood eagle is the most favorable blood sacrifice ritual among them for gods. The series begins at the start of the Viking age and that said to be Lindisfarne raid in 793.
They worship Scandinavian gods. Odin, Thor, and Loki belong to their gods we are familiar with these names in Marvel studio. There is another Viking legend named Ivar the boneless son of Ragnar Lothbrok and he is very famous for his battle tactics and victory raids. He was a cripple but that never made him stop. His angry and madness made him special from other sons of Ragnar. Ivar is my another favorite character from Vikings and this role played by Alex Hogh.
