Meanwhile, Harald Finehair and his brother Halfdan Dubioushair will use the death of Aslaug and the possible split in the Lothbrok camp to take over Kattegat. This will result in a lot of refuges from Norway who will try to escape king Harald and people in the Great Heather Army who will not be able to go home. Then Floki will pick up a rumor of a nearly uninhabited island, visited by some blokes named Naddodd and Gardar. A ragtag team will join him, like Ketill Flatnose, and they will sail to Iceland and start up a colony.

Through this would just be a lame excuse for the Hedeby in the show having nothing to do with the real deal.

*Jossed, it's located in Norway.



** Confirmed. He died in Season 4.

** Confirmed. [[spoiler: He died in Season 4.
4]].



* Jossed, the script for the first episode reveals that they are in Norway.
** And Jossed again. Season 4 will see the debut of Harald Fairhair and Halfdan the Black. Ragnar can't be king of Norway ''AND'' come in contact with ''another'' king of Norway can he? Also, the setting was confirmed as Sweden by Clive Standen in the DVD-extras for season 2.
** So Horik was ''right'' when he said they were Norsemen!
*** Jossed a third time over. Both the script for the first episodes and the official companion book "World of Vikings" confirms a location in southern Norway. The norweigan location and Harald Fairhair does not contradict each other. Harald Fairhair became king of Norway, he was not born as such. He became king after uniting the various petty kingdoms of Norway. It's stated that he will be a rival of Ragnar, which makes sense considering his possible unification plans certainly involves anexing Kattegat. Two king wanting the same land? That's seems recipie for some drama and war.
** And Jossed for a fourth and final time. This is what is written in "World of Vikings" regarding Kattegat, and i quote:
--> "The Kattegat of Vikings '''is not based of a single actual location,''' as that would have limited where Michael Hirst could take the story. It is an invented settlement designed to serve as a focus and anchor point of the series. The name is a nod to the saga story in which Ragnar ruled both Denmark and Sweden, as it is the name of the sea area between the two countries. In appearence it is based on contemporary trading settlements such as Hedeby, but it's location att the head of a fjord is a reference to the description in one of the surviving copies of the Anglo-Saxon chronicles that the earliest Norse raiders came from the old Norse region of Hordaland."
** So there you have it. Kattegat may ''look'' like Norway but that doesn't mean it ''is'' Norway. Every place with mountains in it, isn't Norway. What the script says and doesn't say, is irrelevant, as it didn't make it into the episode anyway, and is thus not canon.
*** Rogaland, also known as Rygjafylki, in Norway seems to be the best option for the location of Kattegat. Because of it's location of in a fjord and Ragnar sitting in Preikestolen. This would make the people of Kattegat the ethnic of ''Rygir'', litterary ''the Rye-eaters''.

**** No, Rollo gives Bjorn aid because he wants to go viking again and is still a pagan. The Lothbroks does not seem to have further interest in Frankia. Helping the vikings attack the Moors would likely be approved the Frankish court, but it is pretty devastating for Gisla to hear he husband is still a pagan at heart. This does not rule that other vikings might try to attack Frankia, we have historical figures like Asgeir and Hostein for that.
