Vikings Season 3. The Real Story Of Bjorn Ironside. What Will He Do In The Future?

Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig)

Bjorn Lothbrok or Bjorn Ironside was a main character in Vikings Season 3 but I expect to see him much more in Vikings Season 4. Why? Today, nine things you should know about this legendary hero.

1.- Bjorn was the son of king Ragnar Lodbrok and Lagertha according to The Tale of Ragnar’s Sons.

2.- Ragnar and Lagertha are not historical people but they found some evidence of Bjorn’s existence. In the 18th century, a barrow on the island of Munso was claimed by antiquarians to be Bjorn Ironside’s grave.

3.- Also, The Annales Bertiniani and the Chronicon Fontanellense tell of a Viking leader named “Berno” who pillaged on the Seine in the 850s.

4.- Anyway, he was a Viking chieftain and naval commander, who conducted many raids in France in a continuation of the tradition initiated by their father Ragnar Lothbrok.

5.- He also sacked the Spanish coast, Gibraltar and Pisa in Italy. Will we see this adventures in Vikings Season 4?

6.- In Italy, in the town of Luna, it happened some very interesting adventure. To gain entry, he sent messengers to the bishop to say that he had died and wished to be buried on consecrated ground within their church. He was brought into the chapel and leaping from his coffin, he promptly opened the gates. Do you remember Vikings Season 3 finale? Ragnar Lothbrok used the same trick.

7.- His last raid was in Gibraltar. But he was defeated and returned to Scandinavia where he lived as a rich man.

8.- Bjorn Ironside is said to have been the first ruler of the Munso dynasty.

9.- In Vikings Bjorn is played as a young boy by actor Nathan O’Toole and as a young man by Alexander Ludwig.

Then, what will be Bjorn’s future? Tell us your opinion now!
