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.

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
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.
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.
The other possibility (which I personally believe) about why Ivar was "the Boneless" was because he couldn't get an erection. This isn't an insane idea as many Viking Nicknames were based on dirty jokes as well as the fact Ivar the Boneless was often described as never having enough time for a wife. Also when you think about it, Vikings left their deformed children out to die... why would have Ivar made it passed the age of 1?
When you claim to present facts, get them straight. Harald Hardrade did not fight William the conquerer, but the saxon king which by the way also was half scandinavian. The saxon / scandinavian king the met, fought and lost to William at the battle of Hastings.
