I'm talking about the lone viking that literally held back the entire English army of thousands of men on the bride killing everyone who tried to pass and only died because the British snuck a man down the river and stuck a pike through the bridge from the bottom to kill him.

A later folk story has it that a giant Norse axeman (possibly armed with a Dane Axe) blocked the narrow crossing, and single-handedly held up the entire English army. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states that this axeman cut down up to 40 Englishmen.

Whn king Olav went to England demanding a shit ton og gold, they sent a bigger army then the one the vikings had. The vikings asked for the money again and they would never come back to England. England knowing that they had the larger troops and had and the vikings had to cross a small passageway that only 3ish could cross at the time, they refused to pay up. The vikings then said fuck you and stormed the English troops. The vikings were victorious, got the gold and promised never to invade England again. They then went to Ireland.

No, not really. There are several graves in other countries, mass graves of vikings having been slaughtered. Presumably taken some from that country with them. There obviously was resistance back then. Usually, they would just have a contract with Vikings. Something like, we pay you for not attacking us kind of deal. Because it would be too heavy on the resources if they came and pillaged constantly, even if they had resistance.
#62 - tylosaurus (03/23/2014) [-]
There are numerous sources also describing this. Unfortunately I don't have my textbook for reference. They would fight till death and not care about torture. They were the fiercest type of warrior. Death or victory was their ultimatum.
You honestly think after several years of traveling across the sea, that they would just turn back again with nothing when reviving? Hell no. How much history have you had, dehumanizer? Like absolutely zero?
#114 - imnotkickthecat (03/23/2014) [-]
If they were such good fighters how did the largest army of them ever recorded (the great heathen army) lose to pig farmers who were unprepared in Anglo-saxon land?
They were ok at best fighters who were poorly equipped and smaller than everyone else because they did not have as much to eat. You are biased because you come from that area.
#118 - tylosaurus (03/23/2014) [-]
How they did lose? They went to England and a lot of them settled there.
Yeah, some of them were pretty scrawny, but that doesn't mean they were bad fighters. The sources recorded clearly describe them as fierce and people to fear. Not because I'm biased at all. Since I live in Scandinavia, it is obvious that we learn about Vikings.
Someone who shouts amerifat fuck yeah, all other places are inferor you all suck. That's hardly credible either. Call me biased, but the texts I've read remain facts. The good thing about facts is that your or my own "biased" opinion matters not for shit.
#69 - dehumanizer (03/23/2014) [-]
Actualy i am quite intrested in medival history so i do know what im talking about.
All of your sources were romantisized stories from the renisanse. They werent some fierced superhuman warriors as popular culture makes them out to be. Just rag tag groups of savage men who went out to sea inorder to pillage some unsuspecting village for easy profit. Get your head out of the clowds.
#105 - tylosaurus (03/23/2014) [-]
No as a matter of fact, not quite. The sources I'm talking about are from the viking age, not the renaissance. Particularly, there's a source from an Arabic trader describing their fierce looks and disgusting ways of living.
Sorry buddy, but if you're so interested you ought to know all what I said. You're hardly making your arguments credible when:
1. You link a wiki answer.
2. You think they just turned around in their longboats.
True, they ALSO fought unsuspecting people, but that's just part of their pillaging. They didn't particularly go pillaging just to fight worthy opponents, you know?

"In the third phase between the years of 876-911, the Vikings, along with their Great Army, continued to plunder on both sides of the Channel and began to colonize England and France. They also permanently settled in lands they had raided such as Ireland, Iceland, and areas in Russia around Novgorod and Kiev. The military response from the conquered peoples varied from one ruler to another. In some places, the Vikings met great opposition from the people. After suffering devastating blows from the Vikings, the English army reorganized: half its men were home and half out on service. A new type of craft was constructed which could oppose the Viking longships in shallow coastal waters. Therefore, when the Vikings returned from the continent in 892, they could no longer roam the country at will due to opposition by the local army's counterattack. Charles the Simple, king of the West Franks, ended the Viking raids in 911 by giving Normandy to the Vikings. In return, Rollo, a Viking leader, pledged his allegiance to Charles, was then baptized, and defended the lands against other Viking parties."
Yeah uhm, think what you want. You're beyond help and sources can't help your ignorance it seems. Also note that no one ever said that they would win 100% of the fights. On the contrary I said it was the other way around too.
to cut it into pieces for you. They plundered the place they arrived to no matter if there was resistance or not. Yes, they did kill defenseless people. So did a lot of other great warriors throughout history, that doesn't make them any less strong.
#159 - dehumanizer (03/24/2014) [-]
And then what? They became good white christians because their shitty tactics were no longer effective.The english army got strong and Charles the smiple pritty much made them his bitches by giving them some lousy buffer region inorder to let the savages fight amon themselves.
#160 - tylosaurus (03/24/2014) [-]
No you ignorant idiot. It is not whether the armies being strong or not here, it's about pressuure and numbers. Europe entered the middle age in around year 1300. This year is determined based upon when the vikings disappeared. It didn't happen in an instant. It happened slowly. Christianity had become huge. Opposing that would oppose not the places they were raiding, but the entire population that were christians. It's one thing to fight off the English army. Try having most of the world against you. Read some books before you try to force your opinion with unsupported arguments on to others.
#161 - dehumanizer (03/24/2014) [-]
What? Thats pritty much bullshit! The middle ages started after the fall of the roman empire, not by 1300, can you even into history?
Christianity became huge because it was better than euro peganisam and almost all of them willingly converted. No one launched a crusade against the norse because they were annoying savages. By the time europe got its shit together, the pillaging no longer worked so they had to advance.
Also calling me an ignorant idiot is very mature.
#162 - tylosaurus (03/24/2014) [-]
Roman empire fell in 1300? What?
Since you've allowed yourself to use wiki, I'll do it too to find someone who can answer your ignorance better.
"That being said, the "Fall of Rome" is normally either dated to the Sack of Rome by Alaric the Goth on August 24th A.D. 410, or the resignation of the last Roman Emperor of the Western Empire, Romulus Agustus, on September 4th, A.D. 476.
This is done by most historians because... well because most historians (at least in the English Speaking World) tend to center their history on Wester Europe. The Fall of Rome was a key event in history because most Europeans (and by extention most Americans, Canadians, and Australians) are not decended from "the Noble Greeks and Romans". No most Europeans are decended from the people that bumped into "the Noble Greeks and Romans", beat them up , and took all their stuff. It was this beating and taking of stuff, and the later Christianization of the Barbarians, that laid the foundation of Western European civilization and culture."
Whehter it's mature or not matters not. You'll find in the real world, people get to the point where they allow themselves to call someone an utter idiot, even if it's on TV because of their ignorance.
