    It is speculated that instead of making the vikings in the series one nationality, the producers chose to make them a collected "scandinavian" people. Thus, the locations representing Kattegat strongly resembles Norwegian landscapes, the accent spoken is clearly Swedish, and the plots are based on Icelandic sagas about Danish heroes, kings and battles. The idea is also supported by the name of the settlement "Kattegat" - in real life, this is not an area, but the sea connecting Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

    The show takes its premise and basic plot from the Icelandic sagas Ragnars saga loðbrókar (The Saga of Ragnar Lodbrok) and Ragnarssona þáttr (Tale of Ragnar's Sons). Some have suggested that the actual protagonist of the cycle is Aslaug. Lagertha does not appear at all in the sagas. She appears in Saxo Grammaticus Gesta Danorum (which is also the basis of Hamlet). Most scholars agree that while there is some historical basis for Ragnar, the father of Björn Ironside and Ivar the Boneless and the plunderer of Paris, Lagertha seems to be entirely made up by Saxo and drawn upon various mythological characters, amazons and sheildmaidens.

    Goof (factual errors): The first Earl of Kategat is referred to as "Haraldson". In fact, the proper way of addressing a Norseman is by their given name, not the second name which is a patronym. This custom still exists in Iceland today.
