Ragnar's Axe



Scourge of England and France, father of the Great Heathen Army and widely considered the most famous Viking warrior of all time, the legendary stories of Ragnar Lothbrok have captivated audiences throughout the ages.

It is said that the infamous Viking warlord raided the coasts of France and England and was duly given land as well as being "paid off" with large sums of silver to leave the lands he raided.

Facts surrounding the death of Ragnar is, to this day, still debated...some believe Ragnar was thrown into a pit of snakes by King Aella when he sailed to raid England; with no more than two ships!

Others believe Ragnar was never captured by Aella and instead give credence to the notion of the before mentioned "pay off" and the snake pit story being a work of fabrication to chronicle his death as Ragnar left to invade the shores of Ireland around 851AD.


Shrouded in mystery the tales of Ragnar may be, one thing that isn't, is the fact that he was a mighty warrior, a leader of men and a legend of Norse history and with his axe you too can embody the spirit of Ragnar
