According to legend, Ragnar Lothbrok was a king of Denmark who succeeded Sigurd Hring in 804 AD. Some historians identify him with Reginherus, a Norse chieftain who was responsible for the siege of Paris in 845 AD. There are historians, however, who dispute this idea. Either way, Ragnar is probably partly historical and partly legendary, like many figures in Scandinavian prehistory. [Source: Internet]

Ragnar Lodbrok or Lothbrok (Old Norse: Ragnarr Loðbrók)... was a legendary Danish and Swedish Viking hero and ruler, known from Viking Age Old Norse poetry and sagas. According to that traditional literature, Ragnar distinguished himself by many raids against Francia and Anglo-Saxon England during the 9th century. There is no reliable evidence, however, that he actually existed under this name and the mythological aspects attributed to it. [Wikipedia]

This photo is from the exceptional T.V. series, "Vikings." Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok. The series has brought Ragnar's epic legend to the screen. I chose this particular photo because of the rustic Norse interior and because it creates a great portrait.

Hi Olando - I looked it up yesterday & I think you can find free episodes on the internet. The one I found was in English but subtitled in French. I'd forgotten how much the 1st episode sets up the entire series. Good luck! :)

Hi Christy. I am Danish, but I have never seen the series, I wonder why, maybe it has been shown on a paying channel. I will try to find it. I love your puzzles, and all the info. Thanks. Vips

Hi Chopin, here's a link to a trailer for the show. Don't know if you can pull this up. There are many: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWBDosdLhoY

Not everything in the series is war - but a lot of it becomes that as Ragnar begins the journeys. The character studies are remarkable. If you do want to watch it, it's available on the internet. Start with Season 1 to understand the origins and complicated story line. Thanks!

Afraid I didn't watch this, but it seems I have missed a treat. Off to do a little research now. Thank you for inspiring me.

I'm glad you saw this series, too, Gerda. It's one of the best I've ever watched. It will return sometime this year but without Fimmel. I hated to see his Ragnar character die, but it's part of the legend. All of the actors are so extraordinary that I'm totally hooked. I don't run into too many people who have seen this so it's nice to know you have. :) This photo looks like it should be a painting. Hugs to you, my dear friend...
