Ivar the Boneless, Halfdan, Bjorn Ironside, and Sigurd Snake-in-the-eye are historical figures who accomplished varying astounding feats including winning battles and ruling at some point. Bjorn shared Floki's concern about Ragnar and all things Christian.
Another pivotal element of this drama is the sons of Ragnar. Floki makes an amazing discovery. You can find his work. Although the Franks have managed to defend the city, a plague has spread in Paris and citizens are dying. King Ecbert says the child is sent from God and will be christened Alfred.
