Ragnar, the legendary king of whom there are references in the Scandinavian sagas – however, there is no evidence that he really existed – is in the spotlight in new episodes. Ragnar, the ruler of the Kattegat with many children (a settlement on the shores of the strait of the same name between present-day Sweden and Denmark), raids the Saxons and Britons.

Lagertha (Catherine Winnick), ex-wife of King Ragnar Lothbrok (who left the “Vikings” in season 4) and his son Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) are the main characters in the new episodes. There is also Ivar (Alex Hyog Andersen), the second son of Ragnar, who escapes from Kattegat and through the Silk Road ends up in Kievan Rus.
