Can we talk about how the vikings could have hypothetically ruled the world? like they took really major cities multiple times and instead of like trying to annex them or anything they ******* sold the cities back like the corporate pirate baddasses they were? Like holy **** Rangar Lodbrok took paris like it was no big ******* deal and he wasn't the only one like 10 years later his brother Rolo does the exact same thing. They were so good at just killing **** that Basically all other cultures that came in contact with the Vikings paid the elite warriors to guard their monarchs, including the king of england and the Byzantines.

he was a legendary norse....
#55 to #44 - daemascus (11/24/2013) [-]
While he is regarded as legendary, his sons were all historical figures, so it seems to me that there is a fairly good chance he existed. I mean someone had to sail west right?

They did not have the municipal capabilities to keep a large empire together. Vikings were good at fighting and fighting alone. Not to mention the vikings thrived at a time when Europe was in shambles. If they went up against the Roman legions at their height, the Mongols, and disciplined force for that matter, they would have lost, handily. Also the Byzantines used the Varangian Guard because the soldiers that used to guard the Emperor were becoming like the Praetorian Guard of Rome, they were becoming Emperor makers not Emperor Protectors.

One of my favorite verses. "Then Jesus replied, 'we're going to get rid of all the wicked people. And the Jews, but later on."-Leviticus 5:17

Yeh, but you're forgetting that Alfred beat them by just making forts everywhere. Vikings couldn't do siege warfare, they shattered the armies
#10 to #8 - greenlaredot (11/24/2013) [-]
historically that is correct, but you are forgetting the fact that their tactics were surprise and raiding. lodbrok sold paris back to the franks because he was heavily out numbered and his forces would have been ****** if they had attempted to hold the city. The franks had thousands upon thousands of well armed mounted troops, while the vikings were only good at ship to ship combat and battles where the odds were even or weighed in their favor.
User avatar #51 to #10 - rhiaanor ONLINE (11/24/2013) [-]
numbers don't ALWAYS matter, the only reason they were willing to give it back was because of the massive amount of experience a viking has compared to an ordinary soldier. IF they amassed themselves rather than being in separate raiding groups, they could totally pull off some world domination.
User avatar #54 to #51 - srskate ONLINE (11/24/2013) [-]
That's supposition there boy, Can't take that as a fact.
User avatar #29 to #8 - srskate ONLINE (11/24/2013) [-]
But them native americans though. They ****** em up. The vikings tried landing on the mainland once. ONCE
User avatar #37 to #29 - xast (11/24/2013) [-]
Lets not forget that they didn't give two ***** about them, also, the vikings nicknamed them "squealer", because of the sound they made. The vikings tried a peaceful approach at first, but later gave up. But yeah, they just didn't give two ***** .

Leif Erikson came form a family of outlaws and Exiles, while he was no doubt the greatest explorer of the viking age, his family had neither the resources nor men to establish a legitimate colony in vinland. Not to mention the incredibly Violent Skrallings
User avatar #52 to #29 - rhiaanor ONLINE (11/24/2013) [-]
I think the reason for that is because for what they had they were too far away to be worth it.

wrong. most norse people were farmers, merchants and simple folk. those who were warriors only went raiding a few months a year, so you cant really say all norwegians, danes, or swedes are vikings.

I'm not trying to be a dick or anything, but is it really such a great thing to be decended from a viking?
User avatar #33 to #21 - samxdaxman (11/24/2013) [-]
No, I don't get it either. My mother is Scandinavian and I couldn't care less if my ancestor 1000 years ago was a Viking. Like yeah, they're fascinating and **** , but who cares if you're a descendant of them? You didn't do anything they did, thankfully, so why does it matter?

It's nifty but not relevant. I'm descended from royalty across the globe, famous people and hero's and **** . But living your life through ancestral decent is just asinine.

If you are lucky enough, then yes. If the blood of the viking runs strongly through your veins, you may use the Viking Shout...

... to throw boats at people. You also look pretty good in a viking hat.

User avatar #38 to #22 - liquidvoodoo (11/24/2013) [-]
I think what ''kalima'' is trying to say is that the word ''viking'' comes from Old Norse which meant ''to go on a journey/voyage''. It looked a lot like the word we use in both English and Swedish (Norsk too, if I'm not mistaken.) ''VĂ­kingr''.
