1. A term which means "northmen", which is what the raiders from Scandinavia were called by British, French, etc. At one time the Vikngs controlled much of the British Isles and western and northern France.

At one time in its history the French were so weak that they were bullied into making a Viking the Duke Of Normandy and letting the Vikings raid and pillage several Eastern French cities unimpeded. The honest Vikings kept to their word and decided not to sack Paris.

The Vikings were also fine shipwrights that build long oar powered boats called "longboats". These ships were long and thin, and despite their appearence they were very seaworthy. Despite popular belief, the Vikings never used longboats for combat, but as a transport.

Under Erik the Red they were the first finders of North America, but they didn't document it and therfore didn't get the credit. It is believed that the Vikings explored as far into North America as Newfoundland(east of Quebec, near Newbrunswick and Prince Eduard Island).

2. Mascot of Minnesota's NFL team. Note this teams is an an insult to the real Vikings.
Viking berserkers will hit your beaches, pillage your towns, and then rape your women.

The Vikings usaully follow or believe in Norse mythology, and the warroirs heaven known as Valhalla very firmly. They believe the only way to enter this heaven is through glorious battle or an honorable fight. Strong and skilled warriors a usual concept of belief is they are stupid clumsy barbarians (not the case). A Viking may act dumb but is actually extremely smart, this usually leads they're enemies to believe they are an easy fight, and the outcome is more often the Viking whips the living hell out of them. Calling a Viking male beardless was and is a insult punishable only by death. A Viking usually has a favored weapon such as an battle axe, sword, spear, or bow (a battle axe in my case). Casual dress for a Viking ranges from the old way of dress to a kind of Metalhead dress. Like a metalhead Vikings will not tolerate being insulted or someone that trys to push them around (we are a proud culture). Also they are not just from northern countries.

The ancestors to modern scandinavians (swedes, norwegians and danes). Fearsome, blonde and snotty beasts. Enjoyed raping young virgins in firy rituals and wash their face in mewcous in the morning, to get that sweet mint smell.

Scandinavians today always argue over whose country's history is the most vikingish. Norwegians and danes never seem to let go of the fact that they ALMOST had the UK and France, but hey, I'll raise my pint of mead for that, it's true, but Swedes went to Turkey and impressed the king so much he paid them to stay and becoming his personal guard personel. They came to raid but stayed to get paid, is a modern swedish saying. Even today the name "Ragnar" is scribbled in runes in a church in whatever their capital's name is.
The Swedes also went to present russia on the river Volga and formed trade cities along the way which in created what now is Russia, from the old scandinavian word "rus" - the people who lived in russia before the swedes came and became a lot more than the actual "ruses". But that doesn't make swedes communists.

What most scandinavians doesn't know today is that during the viking era all of us spoke the same language and no states the "countries" between were established. Not until later, in the middle-ages, Sweden, Norway and Denmark were born and fights broke out. Especielly between Sweden and Denmark who faught for over 500 years. For some time, the Denmark took over Sweden and vice versa.

When the norwegians and danes want to compete in a vikingish-comparing-contest they always brag about them ALMOST conquering britain and france et. c. but than the aware swedish man points his fingers on the 2.000 rune stones all over Sweden, and laughs at the silly amount of 500 stones found in Denmark and Norway's 200. The world's most "northiest" stone is found on Frösön, Jämtland.

Norway celebrated their liberation from Swedish rule recently this year, 2005. All hail to them, we donät want their filthy oil anyway...

Away with the hatrid, I say. Let's loot Europe again, norwegians and danes!
Sweden kicks ass, Denmark punches it and Norway strokes it

An all around name for good looking girls from the lands of Scandinavia (Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland). Girls who qualify as vikings usually match the stereotypical "hot swedish girl" - that is, very light blond hair, good body and pretty blue eyes. However, any good looking girl with Scandinavian facial features and who is from Scandinavia can qualify as a viking.
man: yo dude, you are not gonna believe it, but i finally got a viking last night!

'Northmen' hailing from Scandinavia who were well known for their raids of much of Western Europe and other areas. They settled in many non-Scandinavian areas such as Yorkshire (UK), various parts of Scotland, Dublin (Ireland)and Normandy (France) and their effect on these areas is still felt to this day.

During the Middle Ages (A.D. 500-1500), fierce warriors called Vikings lived on the Scandinavian Peninsula of northern Europe. The Vikings, a tall people known for their blond hair and blue eyes, were skilled craftsmen and daring seamen. They raided many European nations and explored far out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Around the year A.D. 1000, the Viking Leif Ericson discovered the North American continent. It is believed that the Vikings might have started several little villages at the tip of Newfoundland, an island off Canada's Atlantic coast. Although they did not tell anyone about their discovery, the Vikings were nevertheless probably the second people to discover America.
