History Channel's 'Vikings': Who's Who?
A young Viking warrior and farmer, Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) believes he is destined for greatness. Frustrated by the restrictive policies of his local chieftain, Earl Haraldson, he is convinced that great riches lie to the west and resolves to sail across the ocean to find them. Ragnar identifies with the god Odin, who traded his eye for knowledge, and is endlessly curious about what lies beyond his homeland. He lives with his wife Lagertha, a respected warrior in her own right, and their two young children.
