    PLEASE GET THE HISTORICAL CORRECTED RIGHT.
    THE DANES INVADED ENGLAND, NOT THE NORWEGIAN's.
    RAGNAR LOFBROG IS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER FROM A MOVIE-SERIES.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @k1417sind68 Sorry, but no. Ragnar Lothbrok was in the Icelandic Sagas. Don't get hung up on the exact spelling, this guy is a real part of Viking mythology. Although AC Valhalla is based on historical events, it's not an accurate retelling of them.

    Ragnar Lodbrok - Wikipedia

    The Chronicon Roskildense (c. 1138) mentions Lodbrok (Lothpardus) as father to the utterly cruel Norse King Ywar (rex crudelissimus Normannorum Ywar) and his brothers, Inguar (a double of Ywar), Ubbi, Byorn and Ulf, who rule the northern peoples. They call on the various Danish petty kings to help them ruin the realm of the Franks. Ywar successfully attacks the kingdoms of Britain, though not as an act of revenge as in the Icelandic sagas.[13] The chronicle of Sven Aggesen (c. 1190) is the first Danish text that mentions the full name, Regnerus Lothbrogh. His son Sigurd invades Denmark and kills its king, whose daughter he marries as he takes over the throne. Their son in turn is Knut, ancestor of the later Danish kings.[14]

    ”Scotch” is an alcoholic beverage produced in Scotland. “Scots” are the people.

    If you’re going to make an analogy like that, at least make sure it is correct.

    Sincerely,
    A Scot in Canada

    • your keyboard is broken.
    • Anglo-Saxons called "Danes" all vikings, even Norvegian ones.
    • Ragnar is most probably a mix of several Ragnars from the 8th and the 9th century, but the core of the story is historical as pointed above.
    • Denmark, Norway, Sweden... you bring modern days nationalistic concepts and borders to a time period in which they simply didnt exist. That's smart.
    • what's the point of your thread?

    To be fair, the majority who invaded England were Danes, and so all Saxons took to calling all Vikings, Danes, regardless of where they actually came from. You must have missed several conversations in game where Eivor corrects various characters in saying that he is not a Dane.

    @thoughttwenty Sorry, but the ICELANDIC SAGA's are "SAGA's" / STORIES not fact's, and the ICELANDIC SETTLEMENT's where PIRATES not VIKINGS, and taking that into the account on the SAGA's stories is more inspiret by fictionale or true events. UBISOFT have done a poor job in there reseach. Look more into the DANISH VIKING KINGS AND THE DANISH VIKING SETTLEMENT THRUE THE HISTORICAL FACTS IN ENGLAND, SCOTLAND and IRELAND. That UBISOFT doesn't admid that they have done a weak reseach is all about the money.

    @k1417sind68 Forget modern nations. At that time some inheritents may have called all invaders Danes. Remember a Netflix series where it has been exactly like that.

    A low reply? Your post is offensive to Scots. Norwegian Vikings may not be Danes, but Scots are NOT “Scotch.” Whether English is your first language or not is irrelevant. You have been informed.

    Don’t cry about one group of people being mislabelled, when you mislabel another.

    Ah. So, it is okay for you to be offended by Ubisoft’s error, but when your error is pointed out you’re dismissive. Pathetic.

    @jcar4327 Please, try to actually do the reseach regarding the topic and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE use more then GOOGLE RESEACH, or don't reply if you don't know anything..The ref. in the game regarding Regnar LOFBROG, NORWEGIAN and DANES are wrong. Check the VIKING KINGS GORM, HARALD and SVEND. By the way I am a DANE from DENMARK.

    Your apology was not clear. What it read like when you wrote “Sorry, but I’m not,” was “Sorry. Not sorry.” This is a condescending English language phrase (most often utilized by snotty teenagers).

    My apologies for incorrectly interpreting your sincere apology.

    In the old English language, all vikings whom were there to conquer were referred to a Danes. Refer to the entry 789 in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles. A band of danes attacked a port reeve and then sailed home to Norway (paraphrased). Also, majority of invading Scandinavians were Danes, but not all. There were a lot of norse and Swedish Warbands alongside the Danish vikings. Plus there was a huge swath of Norwegian vikings whom invaded northern England from the Danes in the early 10th century.
    Building on this, the viking world was not as much divided into norse, Swedish or Dane. There were slight differences between each, but not particularly noticeable. Majority of large viking armies that sailed west were mostly from modern day Denmark as the area could support a larger population than Norway or Sweden.

    @k1417sind68 Um, Britannica is a reputable encyclopedia that does not delve into fiction, whether it is online or in print.

    And from Ancient History Encyclopedia - Every submission to the encyclopedia is carefully reviewed by our editorial team, making sure only the highest quality content is published to our site. Our publication follows academic standards, but it is written in an easy-to-read manner with students and the general public in mind. As a result, our publication is recommended by many educational institutions including: 


    These are legitimate sites and whether you wish to admit it or not, Ragnar Lothbrok was not a fictional character. So, perhaps you should follow your own advice and do some research before you try to push alternative facts as the truth.

    @jcar4327 Reputation can be a word for, can get away with convincing people of the truth. I'm sure most of it is true. Academics do a fairly good job, but I always keep in mind the further back in time you go the less reliable the sources become. As many stories were told from one to another before an attempt to write them down was made.

    With all that said Ragnar was a real person, what exactly he did and what terms are accurate are debatable.
