Millions love the hit television show Vikings—but how many fans know that its main character, Ragnar, is based on an actual Viking king whose ambitious and terrifying exploits have been legend since the ninth century AD? As fierce, cunning, and determined as the character he inspired, King Ragnar Lodbrok is perhaps most famous for his sacking of Paris in 845 AD. He is also widely regarded to be among the first Viking leaders to target the riches of the British Isles not simply for plunder, but also for Danish settlement. The Legend of Ragnar Lodbrok presents fascinating translations of ninth, twelfth, and thirteenth-century writings—including sagas, poems, and historical accounts—that describe, in vivid detail, the adventures of Ragnar, his sons, and his formidable wives, Lagertha the Shieldmaiden and Princess Aslaug. These absorbing convergences of fact and Norse mythology include a new translation of The Saga of Ragnar Lodbrok; a new translation of The Tale of Ragnar’s Sons; The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, the single most important source for English history during the early Middle ages; Krákumál, a famous twelfth-century poem thought to be Ragnar’s death song; and the Gesta Danorum, a patriotic work that describes the origin of Lagertha and her relationship with Ragnar. Whether Ragnar was a single man of a thousand deeds or an amalgam of heroes may never be proven, but The Legend of Ragnar Lodbrok offers thrilling insight into his brutal, unforgettable world.

Ragnar Lothbrok: The Legendary Viking King! Ragnar Lothbrok is a story of a mighty Viking warrior from the Early Middle Ages. There is no doubt that Ragnar Lothbrok was a legendary Norse hero whose name is always mentioned in the several Old Norse poems and Icelandic sagas. Many historians have also debated the very existence of Ragnar Lothbrok. Although, Ragnar Lothbrok was a renowned chief of the Norsemen during the Viking Age, but some historians tend to credit him for other historical characters of his time, including King Reginfrid, King Horik I, Rognvald, and Reginherus, a Viking who attacked Paris in the middle of the 9th century. While the exactness of the Norse poems and sagas remains highly debatable even to the extent of debating existence or non-existence of Ragnar Lothbrok. The reason being all the accounts are based on the tales and deeds of the former Norse rulers and kings of the early Middle Ages. Thus, the Norse traditional stories played a very important role in incepting some of the legendary characters, including Lothbrok himself. Nonetheless, as per the popular version, Ragnar is renowned for being the curse on both early medieval France and England, raiding many times the Anglian kingdoms of Northumbria and Wessex along with the Kingdom of West Francia, ending with the siege of Paris in 845. This book presents a picture of a larger than life legend and I am sure, after you finish reading this book, you would want to know more about Ragnar Lothbrok and explore the poetry that tells his beautiful story.
