This Month's Featured Althist
Ragnar Lodbrok (Old Norse: Ragnarr Loðbrók), legendary Norse hero, is dying. Gradually the snakes wrap around his body, and he dies a slow death, his last words escaping with his dying breath. Ælla of Northumbria watches, having slain his foe and condemned him to a painful death. The Norseman shall never again plague his shores. Little does Ælla know however of the retaliation that will follow, the wrath of Ragnar's sons. So ends the tale of Ragnar Lodbrok, but it is only beginning of the Ragnarssona þáttr the Tale of Ragnar's Sons, as they seek out their ultimate revenge. War would be brought to the British Isles, with a Great Heathen Army upon its door. Years of devastation plague Britain, leading to the Norse carving their own nations out of the fragile British kingdoms. The fate of the British Isles and Scandinavia, and later the world, is greatly changed.
This timeline uses many legends and Norse sagas as sources for its foundation. Since records and accurate sources are hard to acquire for this time, many things are based on speculation or local folklore, and may not be completely correct. Despite this, this timeline sets out to create an interesting scenario, using as many records as possible to create what the time period of this timeline's point of divergence may have looked like.
