VALHALLA - this is the place where the Vikings that died in battle would go for the afterlife. VALHALLA was located in ASGARD, where there were 540 doors. The doors were so wide that through each huge door, 800 warriors could walk side by side.
Artwork of a Viking king possibly depicting Rollo, the Viking duke of Normandy. It is worth noting Rollo was the predecessor to William I. Who of course famously went on to defeat King Harold at the Battle of Hasting in conquering England.
If you hear the word “Viking” and imagine a man with a huge, out of control, lice-ridden beard with smelly bits of food (or fleshy battle shrapnel) stuck in it, you’re going to need to forget all that.
