The Sagas of Ragnar Lodbrok review ç 109 T down their stories over seven centuries ago This volume presents new and original translations of the three major Old Norse texts that tell Ragnar's story the Saga of Ragnar Lodbrok the Tale of Ragnar's Sons and the Sogubrot Rag. I have been watching the TV show Vikings so this was very interesting to read The author uses three major old Norse stories to tell Ragnar s life and deeds There is a lot of speculation as to whether there actually was a Ragnar He has been identified as various historical persons of this period but there is no actual proof His sons are a different matter as there is information about them Anyone wanting to learn a bit about Ragner and this period of Viking history will enjoy these stories
