I am descended from French & Irish vikings. I guess most Brits are. I often think what a fright the locals got when Vikings rowed up the Liffy into Dublin. If the Britons had not had to run up to Stanford Bridge to see off the Vikings then run all the way back to Hastings to fight the Norman's, the outcome could have been very different

They were some of the first people to come to North America and had settled in what is now Newfoundland.

For two generations vikings were rulers of old Rus' with its capital Kyiv. Since the viviling ships had only warriors, the viking crown was inherited by Slavic rulers through intermarriage.

Danish Vikings settled mainly on the East coast of Britain. Norwegian Vikings went around the top of Scotland and reached Dublin and Ireland.
