🚩 The divergent evolution of the Norse world from the 11th century onwards was, above all, influenced by each country’s geopolitical limitations. This explains the different stages of military Europeanisation that each region attained up to the late twelfth century. Changes in warfare, initially obtained through imitation, slowly started to show growing regional differences from around 1200 AD onwards, a phenomenon mainly fuelled by the disparate conquest interests of the Scandinavian kingdoms.

  2. They were one of the greatest warriors more strong and fierce that Mongols and Huns and others but we're destroyed by their selfishness and fighting among selves for wealth and power.. that is why it is said no matter how Powerful you are but if you aren't United then you are lost and destroyed..

  3. The Vikings were, despite their image as filthy pirates, quite neat and spent a lot of time, money and effort on grooming. Gold from Christian churches and monasteries and silver from Constantinople were turned into beard ornaments. And a well groomed hair and beard were seen as a status symbol. Which also relates directly to my favourite Viking-era insult is 'Taðskegglingur' – which, directly translated, means "dry-manure bearded" and was used for those unfortunate enough not to be able to grow a proper beard.
