Vikings Season 3. Lagertha & Ragnar Lothbrok lost their last chance of happiness in Uppsala. Why? What do you know about the Temple of Uppsala?

Vikings Season 3. Ragnar and Lagertha Lothbrok were a perfect couple and a happy family until the Æsir gods (including Odin, Frigg, Thor, Baldr and Týr) started to be angry with them. Where did this happen? In the Temple of Uppsala. Why? Because any member of their family sacrificed by the gods.

Norse religion was tough, even cruel. It is difficult to understand for a person of the 21st century. Every nine years (Lunar Calendar), they organized a big celebration in Uppsala … including human sacrifices.

Young warriors, offered volunteers, to be killed and fertilize the soil and crops with their blood. But Ragnar Lothbrok was too ambitious and too intelligent to believe in old legends. So, he sent a minor warrior to die, and even he had thought of sending a Christian (Athelstan).

Freyja (Frigg), the goddess of fertility and love, was insulted and now, they have split up. Lagertha cannot have children, and Ragnar has a “child without bones.”

What will happen in nine years? Maybe next time they must return to Uppsala, they take these matters seriously. Don’t play with the gods!

**Today, Uppsala is the capital of Uppsala County and the fourth largest city of Sweden. It was originally located a few kilometers to the north, at a location known as Gamla Uppsala (Old Uppsala). It was the main pagan Centre of Sweden, and the Temple at Uppsala contained magnificent idols of the Æsir gods. Of course, in the 12th century, as a replacement for the Scandinavian gods, Uppsala was made into a strong Christian center. Stefan was consecrated the first Archbishop of Uppsala and primate of Sweden.
