9574 ratings | 975618 views
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. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 → → GET A T-SHIRT - http://shop.spreadshirt.com/toptenz →Top 10 Objects That Were Clearly Invented Just to Annoy Physics: https://youtu.be/0MVGeRa-vLo →Simon's VLOG: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvqt8j7DfPmveJp3UOk9XTg Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

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.

Load of bollocks Hardrada fought, and lost the battle of Stamford Bridge against Harold Godwin or Harold the Second who then fought and was defeated at Hastings by William the Conqueror in 1066.

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

cool video but some of your facts are wrong =] ragnar is known for wearing snakes in a battle with a king of southern sweden. the snakes helped him win when the vipers bit the king, doing enough damage to allow the teen to finish the man. i'd also like to point out that ivar isn't soley responsible for the capture of jorvik and northumbria, but he is soley responsible for the destruction of the alt-clut, a powerful scot-gaelic kingdom during the time.

The story about Bjorn,On Vikings Ragnar did that
Eddard Stark (10 months ago)
Funny thing about the blood eagle, there is no actual evidence that the Vikings did that. The theory I've heard of where the term originates is that the Vikings considered the worst way to have ones body be handled after death was to be left on the battlefield as carrion for the crows and eagles, so they would say, "I'll make an eagle of your back" implying they would kill their enemy and leave them where they died. Misstranslations and embellishment from English scholars and scribes grew into the act that we today know of as the blood eagle, but when the Vikings found out that's what it had turned into they thought it was badass and didnt correct anyone.
Heathen Wolf (10 months ago)
So, that would make Erik "Bloodaxe" Rollo, then. Since Rollo was the one who found and later ruled Northumbria.
