Lagertha: Why did you not tell us earlier. Did you not trust us?
Bjorn: I did what my father asked me to do.
Floki: But Bjorn...
Bjorn: It was the way he wanted to do it and he is still king. And he succeeded, he got us into Paris. And now we have even more spoils.

I can see that not the living, but the dead will conquer Paris.

The Seer

I made the boat that took you to fame and I made the boat that will take you to your Heaven. Give my regards to Athelstan by the way.


Ragnar: There will come a time when you will be responsible for our people.
Bjorn: You are our king.
Ragnar: For now, but when your time comes you must lead with your head not with your heart. Can you do that?
Bjorn: Yes father.
Ragnar: I have something I only trust you do to for me.

This is a man of God. Is it not? And this is water. Am I wrong? You will do it here and you will do it now.


Ragnar: I have something to say. I did not become Earl because I aspired to be one. It came about because of other people's actions. And I did not become king out of ambition, but once again I had no choice as a result of other people's actions. But nonetheless, I am king. King Ragnar, that is my name. What does a king do Bjorn?
Bjorn: He rules.
Ragnar: Yes, good... he rules. And as a ruler, I have the last say. Me! Not you, not you and not you.

Count Odo: Your highness, in the last few days over two hundred of our citizens have succumbed to this unknown sickness and died. God knows how many more will likewise die. What's more, we're running out of fresh vegetables, fresh food and the city is beginning to starve.
Emperor Charles: And yet, we won a great victory.
Count Odo: We may have repelled the pagans and stopped them from entering the city, but that is not exactly a victory. Who knows, the next time they may well succeed. Your highness we have lost too many good men.
Emperor Charles: What is your advice?
Count Odo: I believe we must attempt to come to terms with them.

Count Odo: There was someone else, a great warrior. He spiked that machine and he did it alone. I have never seen a man of such strength and such violence. Who is he?
Cindrich: His name is Rollo. He is the brother of King Ragnar, the leader of the Northmen. He is a famous warrior. He fights like a crazy bear.
Count Odo: Your highness, this man Cindrich, will be of use to us.
Princess Gisla: And this Earl?
Count Odo: Perhaps he could be bartered? Fetch us a good price.
Princess Gisla: If you care for me at all Count Odo, you will bring me his head.

Now that I see them up close, they seem so much less frightening than I supposed. Indeed, they appear almost human.

Emperor Charles

Lagertha: Is he alive? They told me the news. Is he dying? Is my son dying?
Woman: I don't know.
Lagertha: What happened?
Ragnar: He was proving that you don't need a title to be a leader.
Rollo: You should never have let him climb the ladder. Now he may die.
Ragnar: Both of you stop treating him like a child. He is a man. So let him be one.

Harsh are the gods! But I performed great sacrifices, I loved you, I gave you half of all my best goods. And still you have betrayed me!


Vikings Quotes

I always believed that death is a fate far better than life, for you will be reunited with lost loved ones. But we will never meet again my friend. I have a feeling that your God might object to me visiting you in Heaven. What am I to do now? I hate you for leaving me. I ache from your loss. There is nothing that can console me now. I am changed, so are you.


Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.
