if you want to cross here, tell me your name!” Demanded the ferryman. “Mmm, I’ll tell you. I am the son of Odin, the strongest god of all. So ferryman, you are talking to Thor!” The god’s words made waves across the water, they broke at the ferryman’s feet. “Now tell me your name,” said Thor.

A chair was provided for Loki at one end of the trencher, and for Logi at the other. At the word from the giant King, they both began to eat. They gobbled and consumed and devoured. Each of them ate as fast as they could,

edging their chair forward, and they met at the middle of the trencher. Loki had eaten every scrap of meat and left nothing but the bones. But Logi had not only eaten the meat, he had eaten the bones, and the trencher as well.

bjorn ironside quotes

Viking Web Series Name If you pronounce the name to those who are fans of the Viking Web series, they will remember the whole series at a glance. In that case you can share this post with them. You can also share if you are a fan of any of the special characters in the Viking web series whose course is on this website.

Björn Ironside: “Winter is coming”

King Olaf : “Gods blessed upon a sea of corpses.”

Lagertha : “Odin will take you to Valhalla.”

Ivar the Boneless : “In the name of our dead father, in the name of Ragnar Lothbrok, the greatest hero of our country, and in the name of Odin, we declare war on the whole world.”

King Harald : “You can go to prison where you will one day be set free or you can die there”

Igor : “I’m Prince Egor! Emperor of Rus!”

Siggy: “It Is Always A Strength To Know The Weakness Of Your Friends.”

Siggy died trying to save Ragnar’s sons from drowning in the lake. She was friends with both Ragnar and Aslaug, but most importantly, the wisest woman in the great hall whenever Ragnar and the rest of the warriors left to raid.

It is fair to say she understood Aslaug’s weaknesses enough to save her children while risking her own life. She was a sweet woman, always willing to help and give advice to the younger women, including Lagertha.

She didn’t have that many friends after her husband’s death, but she loved the Lothbroks and protected them with her life. Her death was one of the greatest sacrifices anyone made for Ragnar’s family throughout the show.

Torvi: “It Is All The Same With We Women. We Just Give Birth To The Slaughtered.”
Gerodia Hirst as Torvi in Vikings, Torvi expressing a mother’s pain

Torvi finally found peace with her marriage to Ubbe after being the victim of brutality for so long. She never stopped expressing her pain as the mother of two sons that fell victim to the useless Viking battles. When she said these words, she was only expressing the pain of any mother in the show who lost a child to the senseless killings.

She collapsed when Ragnar performed the blood eagle on her first husband Jarl Borg, but her troubles were far from over. Her son Githrum, whom she tried to protect from the brutality of Erelunder, also fell victim to Hvitserk’s ax in the battle of Kattegat.

The death of Hali at the hands of Whitehair the Skogarmaor was the saddest of them all. She was a strong woman and never gave up on being a mother.

Ragnar: “How The Little Piggies Will Grunt When They Hear How The Old Boar Suffered.”
King Aelle tortures Ragnar before throwing him in the pit of vipers

Ragnar Lothbrok was actually delivering a warning to King Aelle, but he was too arrogant to notice. This quote heralded the reign of Ragnar’s sons, as he knew that they would bring hell on all of England to avenge his death. Coming to England to die was his last move to get his sons to raid and finally defeat the Saxons.

Rollo: “Always Remember To Finish Off Your Opponent If You Can.”
Ragnar and Rollo fighting while Rollo defended Frankia in Vikings season 4

Rollo said these words to Bjorn, and this advice would have saved him a great deal of pain if he had applied it in his life. Rollo wasn’t the best of men in the show, but his advice to Bjorn was not misplaced. Bjorn was in charge of the Great Heathen army and he understood that Ivar was jealous of him, but he left the army for Ivar anyway while going to the Mediterranean.

Ivar took control of the army and toppled Lagertha with it, and that was the beginning of Bjorn’s troubles. He managed to retake Kattegat, but he failed to kill Ivar when he had the chance. He could still have gone after him after he escaped along the Silk Road, but he didn’t, and Ivar returned and killed him. Bjorn never fought his battles to completion and they always came back to haunt him.

Ragnar: “Power Is Always Dangerous. It Attracts The Worst And Corrupts The Best.”
King Horik on the throne with the sword of the kings before betraying Ragnar

You could always rely on Ragnar to deliver words of wisdom. He was just a farmer that didn’t know much about power, he didn’t even want it, but he got it and realized that a person in power has very few true friends.

As king, Ragnar hoped to rely on the help of his family, including Rollo, but as he got more powerful, his family became more ambitious and less friendly. He lost his best people, including Rollo, and attracted more enemies, with some, like Harald, pretending to be his friends. In the end, his brother betrayed him and he died a lonely and broken man.

Ragnar: “We Fight. That Is How We Win, And That Is How We Die.”
Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok in Vikings

Ragnar didn’t die fighting. Aelle never gave him that opportunity. He never ran away from a fight in his life though. He always fought for a better life for his family and his people, even in his weakest moment.

When Haraldson attacked Ragnar’s farm, forcing him to hide in Floki’s house, Ragnar wouldn’t take the assault sitting down. He challenged the cruel Earl to a fight and that is how Ragnar became the Jarl of Kattegat. He had to fight for everything he got afterward, which is why everyone respected him so much.

Ragnar: “Don’t Waste Your Time Looking Back. You Are Not Going That Way.”
Ragnar Lothbrok going to meet King Ecbert during the second raid of Wessex

Rising from being a farmer in Kattegat to the greatest king in Norway takes lots of determination and that is one thing Ragnar was never short of. But his journey to the top wasn’t smooth. He lost friends, such as Athelstan, and was also betrayed by some, like Rollo and King Horik, but Ragnar didn’t break.

Ivar: “What Is It About The Word ‘King’ That Makes Even Reasonable People Behave Like Idiots.”
King Harald and Ivar sailing back to Kattegat in Vikings Season 4

Ivar should probably have followed this advice himself. He became king by promising to bring glory to Kattegat and avenge his mother’s death. However, when he sat on the throne, he became a tyrant and even declared himself a god.

He persecuted everyone, including Hvitserk, who had fought for him faithfully because he believed in him, and he became the very type of king he warned Harald against.

Ragnar: “Yes, I Have Made Mistakes. Life Didn’t Come With Instructions.”
Ragnar having an affair with Aslaug on the trip to Gotaland

Life, especially the one that Ragnar Lothbrok lived, doesn’t come with instructions and no one could be prepared for what Ragnar went through. He was just a farmer that became king because of the actions of other people and he tried his best to do the right thing.

People are very unpredictable though, and there was no way Ragnar could prepare himself for all that betrayal. He also made mistakes in his marriage, but he only thought it was the will of the gods. His people, including his own sons, didn’t cut him any slack when he made mistakes at the end of his rule though.

Ragnar: “Power Is Only Given To Those Who Are Willing To Lower Themselves To Pick It Up.”
Ragnar leading the raid on Linisfarne Monastery in Vikings Season 1

Ragnar gave a whole new meaning to power when he said these words. To become the Jarl of Kattegat, he had to kill Jarl Haraldson and he didn’t enjoy it. The worst came when he had to play tricks to turn tables on King Horik and become king. While everyone considered him smart and powerful, Ragnar considered it stooping low.

After becoming king, many people around him played the same little dirty games to get power because they thought it was prestigious but Ragnar didn’t attach much value to it. He had to do many things he didn’t like to get and keep the power. However, while he was king, his life wasn’t as great as you would expect the life of a king to be. He didn’t prevent anyone that wanted to be king from trying what he had done either.
