Stellan Skarsgård as Cerdic in the Clive Owen move, "King Arthur". In this movie, Cerdic invades Britain from the North of Hadrian's Wall, which is historically wrong: Cerdic landed on the south coast (can't exactly remember where right now) of England, and moved inland from there. Cerdic was believed to have been part British, and also thought to have founded the beginnings of the Kingdom of Wessex (West Saxons), later made famous by the Saxon king, Alfred the Great.
forged-by-fantasy: Ragnar Lothbrok is a restless young warrior and family man who longs to find and conquer new lands across the sea and claim the spoils as his own. Now he is an earl and with more power than ever before, his desire to sail west and explore new kingdoms remains unquenchable. Ragnar feels a deep affinity for the Norse god Odin. This powerful deity is the god of warriors slain in battle and is also the god of curiosity.
