The Vikings is a Netflix series that has really captured my attention. I just started watching the show last month and have been trying to slowly watch it but can’t help to binge watch a couple shows once in a while. There is blood, there is love, there is politics, scheming, kings, queens, vikings, death, life, religion, treasure and so much more. Ragnar Lothbrok is the main character of the show. He’s goes from being an average farmer, a loyal viking, an Earl, then a King. He lives in Kattegat with his first wife Lagertha Lothbrok. They have a son Bjorn Ironside and daugther. Ragnar Lothbrok’s second wife Princess Aslaug gave him 4 more sons including a son they named Ivar the Boneless. Ragnar sailed West and found Britain and we watch him on his Viking crusades. The battles are fierce and blood thirsty. Find the best Viking costume ideas for Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Bjorn Ironside, Floki and more below.
The Vikings Costume Ideas
Ragnar Lothbrok Costumes
Ragnar is just a farmer who wanted to sail west for his Earl, plunder and bring back treasure. His Earl did not want him to sail west and said no. Ragnar would not give up and asked Floki to build him a ship. Floki built him a ship and Ragnar sailed west. He found Britain and plundered and found lots of jewels. Ragnar Lothbrok did not value treasure but found that knowledge has a higher value and saved a priest from becoming a slave.

Athelstan was a Christian monk. They had it in their scrolls that one day Northmen would raid their land. When Ragnar and his gang raided the Church they killed a lot of monks and plundered their riches. Ragnar captured a bunch of their monks and took them back to sell as slaves. Ragnar took Athelstan back as a slave to help him with his farmlands and take care of his children. He also educated Ragnar of the Britain lands, their kings, language and more. Later Athelstan became more than that.
