They originally consisted of a group of knights who protected Christian pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land.

They discovered the Americas long before Columbus and could be found as far east as the distant reaches of Russia. While these people are often described as savages raiding the more civilized nations for treasure and women, the motives and culture of the Viking people are much more diverse.
