Background

Björn Ironside was a Viking leader whose history is said to be a mixture of fact and legend. Histories from the 12th and 13th centuries say he was one of the sons of the fabled Viking king Ragnar Lodbrok. Björn lived during the 9th century CE, and was said to be the first ruler of the Swedish house of Munsö. Legends say that when Ragnar became King of the Danes, custom demanded that he sendout his heirs into the outside world to avoid challenges to his authority during his reign. While awaiting his turn for the throne, Björn traveled the world, first sailing down the Seine in 855, pillaging his way through Francia before making his way to Italy and the Mediterranean. It is even said that he went as far as Egypt, to Alexandria, but was unable to capture the city itself. His journey at an end, he made his way back to Scandinavia, where he and his descendants ruled until around 1060 CE.
