    7. Harald Hardrada was actually killed by the forces of Harold Godwinson at Stamford Bridge, who then went on to fight William Duke of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings.

    What about Harald Fairhair? He was the first king of Norway, and the father of Eric Bloodaxe.

    I´m sorry but that story on Egill Skallagrímsson is just horribly wrong, At first he was born in Iceland and was not exiled by the king of Norway. He did not die peacefully. I was taught in school he drowned himself after his son Böðvar died during a storm, the reason being because he did not have anyone to punish and get his revenge on so he did it on nature itself

    Well they change Allot of things especially in england..norway and so on to claim their story theirs..Ragnar Loðbrók also came from Iceland, but history channel changed that…Go figure..sucks that they have to change and ruin history to claim something else, when there are stated facts of the real story..

    Gunnar hammundarson is probably the only badass in this list others are just normal vikings. Freydis seems badass too. I mean hamundarson was ambidextrous swordsman marksman and potentially world’s best high jumper. Freydis well fighting while being pregnant sounds way too badass

    There were lots of great Vikings and Hardrada had lost the Battle at Stamford because they took1/2 his army and left there bodyarmor behind to travel faster and were surprised by a large army, or the English throne would be full Viking instead of 1/2

    Please correct the page. Harold Hardrada died at the hands of Harold Godwin NOT at the hand of William the Conqueror!!! The Anglo-Saxon army had to fight and defeat Harld Hardrada first and then rush to the Battle of Hastings where they were rather tired and in a close battle lost England to the Normans – a very sad day in our history.

    The times were different and if somebody killed another or some others in a spectacular way the stories getting off cause built up till you get the Idol type.
    I guess in most of all their lifes they were just doing jobs in their yard and village like fishing, hunting, farming to make it a living.
    When this did not last they were listening to (same built up) stories of countries were the food is growing right into your throat and as result of desperation they took the risk.
    On a successful return they told stories about hard battles and heroes deeds and not from scared farmers that run away in panic if they could.
    Look around in your town today, aren’t there still that kind of badasses who have a reputation as such where you try to avoid running into them or stepping on their toes?
    Today they are called Hells Angels, Outlaws, Bandidos but also named as Mafia, Streetgangs and even Hooligans or common local toughs.. and so on and on.
    The only thing is that you were getting much better along with murder.. LOL.
