Vikings is an English-spoken Canadian historial drama series about the Norsemen of Early Medieval Scandinavia, and their raiding and trading at the beginning of the Viking age in the first century. More specifically, the series focuses on Ragnar Lothbrok (played by Australian actor Travis Fimmel), a young farmer who out of discontent with his leaders rises through the social ranks to eventually become a Scandinavian king. The story of Vikings is loosely based on the legendary tales of Ragner Lothbrok himself as described in several historical accounts and Norse folk tales. The series is mainly recorded in Ireland, with some scenes being filmed in parts of Norway, for the Canadian channel History.
