Vikings, Bjorn Ironside's (Alexander Ludwig) Sword of Kings

original movie prop

Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel), a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore - and raid - the distant shores across the ocean.  From the Vikings 2019 season 5 episode 20 “Ragnarok”, and seen in multiple episodes; this is the “Sword of Kings” that was given to Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) by Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) for defeating Ivar and becoming the King of Kattegat. Whoever is the rightful monarch possesses this to symbolize his power, and is akin to scepters or regalia used by real world sovereigns. The Sword of Kings is long, with a brown-colored handle and hilt, and a distinctive blade. The hilt of the sword is adorned with precious jewels and etched with Viking runes that translate to "Sword of kings". Whilst attacking Kattegat, King Horik showed the sword to his son, Erlendur, saying that if the gods willed it, he would one day possess it as his son. After killing Horik, King Ragnar oversaw his new domain on a high cliff, symbolizing his newfound monarchical status. Lagertha assumed the sword from Aslaug shortly before she killed her in revenge for taking Ragnar as her ex-husband. Shortly after the Siege of Kattegat, Lagertha gives the sword to her son Bjorn and proclaims him King of Kattegat. He later oversees his kingdom on a high cliff while holding the sword, as his father (who appears to him as a draugr) did before him. The Sword of Kings is a ceremonial sword, signifying the power and authority of the King of the Danes. It is currently in the possession of King Björn Ironside.
