The Plot of the Show
The series takes its inspiration from the tales of the Norsemen of the early medieval Scandinavia. It follows the exploits of the legendary Viking chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok, his crew, family, and descendants. Further inspiration for the series is taken from historical sources of the period, as the records of the Viking raid on Lindisfarne depicted in the first season. Also, from Ahmad ibn Fadlan’s 10th-century account of the Varangians. The series begins at the start of the Viking Age, which is marked by the Lindisfarne raid in 793. The series then follows the fortunes of Ragnar’s sons and their adventures in England, Scandinavia, and the Mediterranean.
