Trivia

Travis Fimmel (Ragnar) is only 13 years older than Alexander Ludwig, who plays his son Björn. Katherine Winnick (Lagertha) is only 15 years Ludwig's elder. This however is in keeping with the Viking era when adulthood was considered to be puberty, therefore marriage at a young age was not just common, but the norm. Women often died in childbirth and the widowed husband would then take another wife of 12 or 13 years of age even if he was an "old" man in his 40's. See more »

Goofs

The Viking Age government is shown to be theocratic. In reality, the government of the Viking Era was an elective monarchy. The Norse had the legal and religious right to dispose of their kings which were elected in votes and had the legal right to oppose a royal policy at a thing. 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.

Good show
10 March 2013 | by See 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.
