about

Unfortunately, the Romans weren’t the last invaders Yorkshire faced. Most famously, they encountered Scandinavian Eric Bloodaxe, who became King of Norway on the death of his father. In a bid to keep the crown, he had four of his older brothers killed; he was eventually ousted by his younger brother and came to Britain. He was made King of Northumbria and lived in a palace in York; from this point on, York and Northumbria were part of a united Anglo-Saxon kingdom.

lyrics

Bloodaxe (The Last Of The Viking Kings) (Music and Words Tim Hunter)

Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings

In their Longships the Viking marauders came
Pagan Plunderers bringing nothing but
thunder and pain

Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings
Bloodaxe attacks!

With Whirlwinds and lightening
The slaughter begins
In 948 Eric Bloodaxe is York’s new king

Bloodaxe,
The Last of the Viking Kings
Bloodaxe,
The Last of the Viking Kings

In his palace in York
Eric ruled with
Gunnhild
To keep the crown many killed
He had many enemies
Eric was ambushed and died,
and he entered Valhalla
Now he’s there with his Axe by his side
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings,
Bloodaxe, The Last of the Viking Kings
