Ivar Boneless Quotes: "You Can't Kill Me"
Ivar the Boneless was one of the most famous Viking heroes. He was allegedly one of the commanders of Viking Great Heathen Army.
According to the Tale of Ragnar Lothbrok, Ivar being boneless was the result of his mother's curse. After a long voyage, his father (Ragnar) finally came back home. Aslaug warned Ragnar to wait for three days before consummating their marriage. But Ragnar could not resist the lust and didn't listen to Aslaug's warning. As a result, Ivar was born with weak bones.
The lame can ride horse, the handless drive cattle,
the deaf one can fight and prevail,
'tis happier for the blind than for him on the bale-fire,
but no man hath care for a corpse
Despite his physical disabilities, Ivar still becomes one of the most powerful Viking heroes.
