Vikings

Mercy - S4-E3

Factual error: Bjørn is living in a log cabin in the mountains. This logging technique was not common until 2-300 years later.

The Profit and the Loss - S4-E7

Factual error: When Floki has a vision of Aslaug outside the viking camp along the seine river in France, the vegetation is that of a pine forest and the landscape is that of a mountainous region. There is no such area from the English channel to Paris, which is only flatland. The scene was filmed in Scotland. (00:34:25)

Epigenis

Show generally

Factual error: Several of Ragnar's relatives are called "Lothbrok" through the series (most notably, Rollo and Ubba), but Lothbrok was not a family name. The vikings did not use family names at all, though they did use personal sobriquets (such as "Ironside", "the Boneless" or "Finehair"). "Lothbrok" was Ragnar's nickname only. A more appropriate sobriquet for any of his sons would be "Ragnarsson" (son of Ragnar).

Athelstan: I wish it was so simple. In the gentle fall of rain from Heaven I hear my God. But in the thunder I still hear Thor. That is my agony.
Ragnar Lothbrok: I hope that some day our Gods can become friends.
