[show]Jarl Borg was originally a Swedish jarl and Horik would send Ragnar to Sweden to settle the dispute. When Gustaf Skarsgård read the script he wrote to Michael Hirst and informed him that 1) "Sweden" did not exist during at that time and 2) Uppsala would most certainly be part of it if. Hirst changed it Götaland (Land of the Geats). Sweden was formed as a consolidation of Götaland and Svealand (Land of the Swedes) where Uppsala is located.

- SPOILER: In this series Ivan Kaye plays King Ælla. In 'Hammer Of The Gods' (2012) he played Ivar the Boneless, the viking who killed Ælla.
