Ragnar Lothbrok was a historically Norse Viking hero and legendary king of Denmark and Sweden, known from Viking Age Old Norse poetry and sagas. According to that traditional literature, Ragnar distinguished himself by many raids against Francia and Anglo-Saxon England during the 9th century.

Other than poetry and sagas, what is well documented is that Ragmar’s three sons led the last Viking army on the mainland of England. This army was driven off by Alfred “The Great,” king of Wessex. With England clear of all foreign invaders, Alfred became known as Alfred  I “The Great,” king of England.
