The Vikings were a Germanic tribe who settled in Scandinavia, Russia, and North Atlantic islands.
The Vikings had an age called the Viking age and it lasted from 793 through 1066. The loss of the battle of Stamford Bridge is what caused the end of the Viking age.
The Vikings had their first attack when an assistant to the king tried to tax them for no apparent reason. Later on the Vikings killed that man. People say that, that instance doesn’t count as an attack but no one really knows for sure.
As almost everyone knows the Vikings were a very cruel and barbaric people.
Later when the Vikings grew bigger they had to expand, well, that’s one reason they could have needed to expand another reason would be because they had such an urge for war the wanted to go to it rather than wait for it to come to them!
The Vikings had many different religions however for the Christians did finally outlaw dioceses. That is when they murder their own child if they do not want it. I, personally am very happy that they outlawed it because it is MURDER!!
The Viking age was over in 1066 but, that does not mean that they all went “extinct” they did start to populate more and continue to expand their land!
Fun Fact: on my dad’s side of the family I am actually related to Vikings!
