Ivar: Someone betrayed me and let them in. Are you going to deny it?
Freydis: No. On the body of our dead son, no. I let them in.

Gunnhild: I have thoughts too. I have dreams. I lost a husband, and I have never had children.
Bjorn: Do you want children?
Gunnhild: It's what my body was made for.

Torvi: You were between life and death? What did that teach you?
Lagertha: The only thing that I've learned is that life is about suffering. There's no escape from it. That's the truth. What's important is how we deal with suffering, how we deal with the truth.

You know who I am. I am Bjorn Ironside, son of Ragnar. I grew up with many of you. You were my neighbors, my friends. We played together when we were children. I am not your enemy! Ivar is your enemy! He rules over you with tyranny and cruelty.


I want to see Ivar strung up in a tree.


Bjorn: Where are you going with such a large army? To support Ivar, I suppose?
Hvitserk: On the contrary, to attack him. To attack Kattegat with King Olaf, and, with you, I suppose.

Bjorn: Well if you make a deal with Ivar, then you will have to kill me.
Harald: I know. And if you do not want me to make a deal with Ivar, then maybe you will have to kill me, Bjorn Ironside.

I have spent a lifetime trying to figure out what fate had in store for me, and all I know is the gods work in mysterious ways. Ways that you and I cannot begin to understand.


Torvi: Lagertha, you're alive?
Lagertha: Yes, I'm alive. As you can see, it is difficult to kill me.

Ragnar, do you see this? Are you watching this? This is our dream.


Ubbe: Something has changed inside me.
Torvi: What do you mean?
Ubbe: I don't know if it happened during the fight, or afterwards when I thought I was going to die, but this cross means nothing to me. I put it on like a broach, bangle, some decoration. It speaks so other people can hear it, but it doesn't speak to me.

Harald: I thought you wanted to be queen of Norway?
Gunnhild: Yes, but I never said who I wanted to be king.

Vikings Quotes

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.

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.
