Scandinavian settlement of the British Isles

The Norse are a culture in Viking Conquest. Norsemen are the iconic invaders of the Viking age. From Scandinavia, the Norse homelands, many men ventured to the kingdoms of Northymbre and Laithlind. These were the pagan Norse kingdoms of Britannia and Ireland. Northymbre was a kingdom of Angles, but was made a puppet of the Danes by the time of the Great Heathen Invasion. The Norsemen have been raiding and conquering in the Britonnic Isles and Friese for a century before the time of Viking Conquest, and the raids of the Viking age historically lasted until 1066.


Due to the overpopulation of Northvegr and Danmark many Northmen and Danes started moving from their homelands to amongst others the British Isles. Here there were enough land, and enough plunder for men to get rich fast. The Norse were mostly pagan in this time, and the rules for Vikings (Old Norse vikingr: some who goes on an expedition, a viking), did not ban one from killing and stealing from the Men of The church. This made them hated across the Christian world, which has in turn given us the view of vikings as barbarians.

Great heroes or legends like Ragnar Lothbrok inspired many to go out on Viking expeditions. After the King had been executed by King Ælla of Northymbre, the sons of Ragnar, the Ragnarssons that were looked up to as sons of a great warrior and leader, lead the Great Heathen Invasion that conquered Northymbre, East Anglea and most of Mierce, thereby forming the Danelaw (Rule of Danes).

The Danes and Northmen were expert ship builders and seafarers, travelling as far as Vinland in North America to the west; Persia to the east; and Arabia to the south.


Norse Troop Tree


Unlike the Gaels, Picts and Anglo-Saxons of Britannia who were Christians, the Norsemen worshipped their own gods. These were primarily the æses: Odin; Thor; and Freyr.

Having pagans rule over Christians was a cause of hate for the Christians in Britannia and Ireland, and both Celts and Saxons cooperated to withstand, and eventually push back the Great Heathen Invasion. The Norsemen that stayed in Britannia were Christianized.

Events in gameEdit

Danmark and Northymbre do have a significant part in the main storyline, although Northvegr and Laithlind relatively do not.

The Norse Kingdoms rarely, if ever, wage war against each other.

Except for the Kingdom of Laithlind, the Norse Kingdoms are very strong compared to other cultures.
