Ragnor Lothbrok portrayed in the History channel's program "Vikings" was my 34th great grandfather. I think he is a fascinating, complex character.

Swiftly our longboats glide across water

we follow the dragon to new lands

we are conquerors, seekers of treasure

lover to my wives, teacher of my sons

feared specter of death to my enemies

I do not expect to live in peace

I fight because I am a warrior

am I corrupt? oh yes

and ruthless, I take what I want

this is what men do, they fight

they conquer and they defend

I am not opposed to killing any man

when it suits my purpose

I call on Odin and he reveals to me

the path of the warrior, reign of a king

I have conquered the Christians

they are corpses or slaves

I do not worship the Christian god

nor give any credence to his laws

I am a ruler of jarls and I make the laws

In battle I wield the ax and sword

and revel in the blood of my enemies

and if I die then so be it; sword in hand

I wait for the Valkyrie to carry me

to Valhalla to feast with the Gods

I am a warrior, I can be nothing else

A fine tribute to a mighty legend for the people of Scandinavia.

I've watched the series with great interest from the very beginning. While appearing to be very historically correct in the way that the Vikings lived and fought their battles, I thought it was merely fiction, until I read your statement above and checked Wikipedia.

While men of that name lived at that time, what I found out was there seems to be a difficulty linking him with one of his sons. That does not diminish the drama that is unfolding in the series, with Ragnor having great ambitions and constantly being undermined by others vying for his fame and fortune. Really good stuff to watch.

I was quite surprised to see Vikings attacking Paris, but my brief search found that they actually did in the 9th century. History is wonderful for what it reveals.

You have captured the essence of man very well. Being his descendent, you carry some of that with you.
