„Ragnar Lodbrog“

from the gallery of christian-hoejgaard

Ragnar was one of the most popular Viking heroes among the Norse themselves, Ragnar was a great Viking commander and the scourge of France and England. A perennial seeker after the Danish throne, he was briefly ‘king’ of both Denmark and a large part of Sweden. To court his second wife, the Swedish princess Thora, Ragnar traveled to Sweden and quelled an infestation of venomous snakes, famously wearing the hairy breeches whereby he gained his nickname. This illustration appeared in a childrens book on the norse sagas published in Denmark by Gyldendal
