Vikings fans were surprised to see the show’s hero, Bjorn, die in one of the very first episodes of last season. Recall that Ragnar Lothbrok’s son (Travis Fimmel) had actually been seriously wounded throughout the Battle of Rus and did not have long to live.
He created a plan to lull the Rus Vikings into a false complacency, making them believe that he was dead. When Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) and his guys returned to finish the fight, Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) emerged and brandished his sword for the last time.
Sadly, Bjorn was shot down by a series of arrows and fans were forced to come to terms with his terrible fate. Bear in mind that his body was preserved in some way and was stored inside a burial place high in the mountains.
An incredibly practical figure of Bjorn riding his horse stood in the center of the tomb, brandishing his sword as if he will go into battle. On his side, his 2 other halves, Gunnhild (Ragga Ragnars) and Ingrid (Lucy Martin), had visited his tomb to grieve.
Ever Since, Vikings fans have taken to Reddit to talk about how the strange statue of Bjorn was created, with some thinking his body might have been packed.
Also, other fans seemed to agree with the theory that his body had been incorporated a particular position with ropes or chains and wood frames.
However, they have actually recommended that the figure was a clay statue, instead of the real Bjorn Ironside. The reality is that it is not known for sure what took place to Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) after his death, as there does not appear to be any mention of the process in the series.
The secret has actually left Viking fans curious, and some marvel if his body maintained from him was a sign that he could never ever pass away in spirit. Let’s not forget that Bjorn was provided the nickname Ironside due to his ability to emerge unscathed from battles.
