Vikings: 7 Characters That Were Based On Real People (And 3 That Are Completely Fictional)

Vikings was a phenomenal breath of fresh air for historical fiction fans all around the world. It's packed with action, adventure, and drama. The storylines are compelling, the characters are strong and beautifully developed, the sceneries are breathtaking, and everything's nicely wrapped around the overall awesomeness that is the Viking world.

Since 2013 we excitingly devoured every episode, waiting for our weekly fix of inspiring women warriors, tales of conquerors and defeated souls, marriages, children, and, quite honestly, pretty fantastic outfits that made us wish we got to be transported back in time. The tale of Ragnar Lothbrok, and later, of his children, will surely stay with many of us for years to come.
