(Born 896 AD)
Ubba was a Viking Norse leader. He was even said to have Killed his own farther (Ragnar Lodbrok) by giving him the Blood-Eagle torture; this is when someone rips another person’s lungs out. Ubba killed King Edmund giving him the same treatment as his dad. Ubba’s last name was Ragnarsson.
In 878, a party of Vikings landed on the English coast at Combwich. Ubba was killed by the Saxons under the leadership of Odda of Devon at the Battle of Cynuit in Somerset. The town of Hubberston was named after Ubba. This place is in Pembrokeshire, South Wales. Nobody knows what his age at death was although people do know when he was born, this was 869 AD. He was the nastiest Viking ever.
Vikings made soap out of conkers by crushing them up and putting them all together in a ball. The Vikings ate a lot of fish, meat, fruit and bread. They ate meat and fruit because they farmed the crops and bred the animals. They had to make their own bread because there was no such thing as windmills, flour or bakers.
Some Vikings only came to farm their crops because there was a short supply of farmland where they came from. Others just to plunder monks as they where the easiest to kill, but as they came they found themselves fighting against the Anglo-Saxons. The Vikings also made their long ships look like dragons to scare off the people that where fighting them. Historians have found this out by the remains of ships that have been found. These ships had red and white stripes on their sails and they were made of cotton.
Ubba was the most blood thirsty Viking of them all and the Vikings where a very blood thirsty lot. Would you be able to sleep with Ubba around?
