There’s a good reason the sight of a Viking longship struck fear in the hearts of coastal villagers: the Vikings were bad news for everyone. When they weren’t raiding, pillaging, and demanding tribute not to raid and pillage, Vikings even fought with each other. There are so many badass Vikings that it’s tough to narrow it down, but these ten who made their peers soil their breeches.

Not all of this is proven. For example nr 1. It was the ango-saxon king Harold Godwinsson that fought first the King Harald Hårdråde and then William the conqurer, where he lost. If one should have read the sagas Sigrid Storråda should be included. She was first married to the king of Svear Eric Segersäll (Victorious). After the divorse several men wanted to marry her and problably didn't ask nicely. So she got them drunk, her staff blocked the exists and her warriors burned down her hall. Then she was courted by the norwegian king Olav Tryggvasson, though she refused to become an christian and he slapped her. She then married Svein Twinbeard and told him and her son Olof Skötkonung (the new king of svear), what happened and they went to war and Olav Tryggvason was killed. Also blodeagle isn't to carve an eagle, instead they cut open the ribs in the back and pulled out the lungs. That looked like an eagle.
This is very overly simplified and worse, very very very skimmed over and missing inportant pieces of information. But.....it is this guy and his content is generally common misconceptions and skimmed over content
"three seemed to slash throught the air at once"
Its a very common effect of psilocibyn. You perceive at the same frame, 3 states of a movement.
I once saw a boy jumping a small pool of water. Saw him taking the impulse, jumping over the pool and walking already at the other side, all this in the same image.
Maybe that is the origin of the quote.

Ireland have almost always been unlucky against the English, but we eventually put manners on the Viking's, when they had their arses kicked by our high king Brian Boru in 1014, sadly though after their victory some Viking's strayed off and found Brian Boru in a nearby tent and cut off his head. They got their arses handed to them that day, bastards.

Harald Hardrada was killed at the battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066 by the last Anglo-Saxon King of England Harold Godwinson. You omitted your sovereing Saxon Angle entirely... you call yourself English?. LOL. It s tantamount to having no brain! Haha ha... Harold and all his huscarls and fighting men had to go swiftly south to defeat the other invading force upon English soil of Duke Wilhellm of Normandy.
Here is where Harold Godwinson the last Anglo-Saxon King of England was slain defending his kingdom against the Normans at the battle of Hastings Oct. 14, 1066 you see the deciding factor was not an arrow nay, it was you and I crossed and in the balance of true tales hours of who wil win must now cease "in the neck die by an enemy arrow in.
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa 1 whooorll puuulllll ZION.
First, what about Vagn Åkesson, Ivar Vidfamne, Styrbjörn Starke, Arnljot Gelline, Einar Styrkårsson Tambaskjälve , Bue Digre, Vigfuss Viga-Glumsson, Sigurd Orm-i-öga.......... and many more. The TV-vikings in "Vikings" - just crap. Soap... Soap... Soap... in costumes.
Also a"Blood Eagle"is made from two slits through the ribs and the lungs are pulled through while the person is still alive and as they're breathing the lungs flap like WINGS!!! There's no eagle carved anywhere its just the lungs pulled through the back that gives it the name"Blood eagle"!!!!
Hardrada am number 7?! The man was fighting in battles at 16, fought Bulgars for the Kieven Rus for years, sailed via rivers all the way to the Black Sea and on to Constantinople where he became a Varangian Guard and fought all throughout the Mediterranean and partook in palace plunder a number of times, went to the holy land, left the Varangian guard stupid rich, became king of Norway and if it weren’t for a stray arrow to the neck might have taken England too. He is considered the last Viking-age king. Number 2 at the least.
That is not what a blood eagle is. You don't carve an eagle into their back. You slice open their back and pull out their organs and ribs and arrange them so that from the back he looks like an eagle. Damn get your facts straight dude
