Please Ian990, give credit where credit is due.
or blame if that happens to be the case.

I have a mixed feeling about the Vikings.  Their raiding and pillaging during the Middle Ages destroyed a blossoming medieval scholarly community in England (Venerable Bede was in a window of time before them). 

Kind Regards,

A quick look at Wiki indicates that in fact the first King of Sweden was King Olof.

Quote However, due to scant and unreliable sources before the 11th century, lists of succession traditionally start in the 10th century with king Olof Skötkonung, and his father Eric the Victorious, who also were the first Swedish kings to be baptized.

Ivar the Boneless has been credited with being the brains of the sons of Ragnar, who many still claim to be a myth, while Bjorn was the war leader.

Hello everyone

 It is essential to remember when discussing Vikings, that they were from the three countries, Norway Sweden and Denmark but there was nothing called Norway Sweden and Denmark when the Vikings began their journeys.
To make a long history short, people from a place at the Baltic Sea called Rus-lagen /Ros-lagen, sailed into what we today call the Russian Rivers and tried to find markets for their goods.  The inhabitants of Novgorod was so impressed by these people that they asked them to reign over them and that is why Rusland was named after these people from Rus-lagen , after they settled..

After Eric the Red was chased from the Danes, he set sails from the Norwegian coast and settled on Iceland and later on Greenland.

The Angles and Saxons came to Britain 400-500 years prior to the Viking age - Anglen and Saxon was the southmost part of Jutland (later Denmark) at that time.
In 793 Lindisfarne was attacked and the Vikings started to attack the eastern coast and mainland of England (notice similarity with Angland) 
The result was Danelagen (DanelaW) and Danish rule under Cnut the Great, also known as Canute—whose father was Sweyn Forkbeard —was King of Denmark, England and Norway; together often referred to as the North Sea Empire. Yet after the deaths of his heirs within a decade of his own, and Norman conquest of England in 1066, this legacy was lost. 

When you mention Ivar the boneless, and Bjørn Ironside they were not kings - but Viking chieftains fighting to become king like thier father before them.
