Vikings Season 3. Can Ragnar Lothbrok Conquer Paris? He Is About To Die!

Vikings Season 3

Vikings Season 3 episode 27 (titled “To the Gates!”) was absolutely amazing. Congratulations to the writer, Michael Hirst, and director, Kelly Makin, by this episode. It was fascinating to enjoy such a brutal realism and perfect historical setting.

It seemed that we were in battle, in the assault on the walls of Paris, suffering with the frightened Parisians and then, with the failure of the Vikings.

Why did Ragnar Lothbrok (actor Travis Fimmel) fail in his attempt to conquer the city? Answer is simple. He was carried away by his ambition and fanaticism. The spirit of his old Christian friend Athelstan was not there to help him as he supposed. There are no ghosts in real fights, and Paris walls were impenetrable.

Thus, Can Ragnar Lothbrok Conquer Paris? He is seriously injured, also his son Bjorn and his brother Rollo. He needs a new army and new weapons and especially, he needs to recover and be patient. Paris cannot be conquered in an afternoon! In fact, it cannot be conquered from outside. He needs a traitor who will open the gates from inside. Who could be this traitor? Whoever if he offers lands or gold. The King of France, Charles the Bald, and her daughter are not very popular! But he needs to look at the person and this is not done in a hurry.

Otherwise, he needs to besiege the city for months and defeat them by hunger, lack of water and disease. To poison water supplies has always been effective and a reasonable possibility thanks to the large number of corpses piled on the Seine river.

We will see in upcoming episodes what his decision is. But he needs to be more patient and cleverer, and not risk his people for nothing.

** History: Charles the Bald fought against the Vikings, who devastated the country of the north, and the valleys of the Seine and Loire. Charles led various expeditions against the invaders and, by the Edict of Pistres of 864, made the army more mobile by providing for a cavalry element, the predecessor of the French chivalry so famous during the next 600 years.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
