10200 ratings | 1029923 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!

#10 did you have to put a horned helmet on the guy. Vikings never wore that. Hail Odin, the all father for all you other Norse pagans out there.

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.

Oh dear, it was Harold of England who defeated Hardrada at Stamford Bridge. Only to have to rush south to Hastings where the Normans defeated his exhausted army.

"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. Sry about my english nice video btw

No viking in history have ever had horns on their helmet. Berserkers were the only ones with animal heads upon their crown. Capes are alright because they used them to keep warm.

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.

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"!!!!
T.J. Freeman (8 months ago)
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.
