TV Fact #156 – March 19th, 2015:

“Vikings” (2013-Present) is based in Norse history and mythology. This is no more directly, or indirectly to some unfamiliar with the history and mythology, than with the women featured in the opening credits. They are supposed to be the 9 daughters of Rán, the personifications of the waves. The title sequence is supposed to show the separation of a viking from the living, with the ornaments of his life, which are gold and weapons, floating down around him. In fact, during the shot of the rolling thunder there is a single frame showing Hel Lokisdottir who is the goddess of death.
