Ragnar Lothbrok is a restless warrior and family man who longs to find and explore new countries across the sea. His goal is to settle his own people to thrive on rich new farm lands. Now that he is King, his ambition to raid new kingdoms remains unquenchable, not least because he claims to be an ancestor of the Norse god Odin–the god of slain warriors, but also the god of eternal curiosity.
