Episode Deaths


  • The title references the figure Hvitserk discovered.
  • Iceland has a much more generous climate than depicted in the series. Vikings named it Iceland to discourage any other raiders to come to it, and Greenland, which has a much harsher climate, to make any raiders go there instead.
