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.
