    arabs killed turkish villages just like spain and forced to them convert muslim from shamanic religions so dont believe arabs when islam is strong becoming evil
    paganism and death cult both are same in vikings and turks and this is better than any religion.

    A moor is a type of land that is not used for farming (aka heath). A Moor was not a farmer. They made Celtic blue from woad or were Arab traders of indigo or blue Spaniards.

    Was there really a thing as Swedish vikings or Norwegian vikings back then or is this is a modern interjection? Because as far as I know there was no concept of norway ,Denmark or sweden back then.

    Complete bullshit if your going by Muslim accounts esp going by ibn who never met saw or to any viking contact ...they were only their for silver and when silver ran out no more contact and their were no viking converts to Islam either utter bullshit! You can't tell the name Islamic name for them and how this missed name disproves ibn who never even met a viking and went by stories he heard alone! Bullhit

    Gad Yariv the term "Moore" referred to people who were mostly from North Africa (Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco etc.) and who were /are Berbers, plus ethnic Arabs! So I agree with you and that the "popular" image conjured up by this term of them being black is largely due to European art and literature that showed a Moore being black (and often portrayed as ruffian too!). All this owes very much to this less than accurate portrayal of the "Moores".

    The Moors and related Berbers are not exactly "black" as subSaharan populations are. Many had blonde or reddish hair and blue eyes. This fact is pre-Viking contact as the pre-Kingdom Egyptians populations also had people with reddish hair (ie the oldest mummy found to date) and had blue eyes, as exhibited by the blue eyes on many, many statues from ancient Egypt.

  • Lemurai

    I'm just going to be honest and say, I don't believe anything pertaining to history written by white Europeans. It's got nothing to do with racism atleast not on my part and what sense does it make to take a white persons word on the history of another race of people when many cultures have their own written, oral and photographic histories, seriously why would you believe any of it? Especially anything hailing from 1400's-1900 and most certainly anything written by British hands. It just boggles my mind that even in academia where many biased assumptions about historical takes were recently reevaluated and refuted, some professors still refuse to accept the idea that their people were not the big bad wolves and thinkers of all on the historical block. Hell Indians and Chinese were doing math before Europeans figured out how to make thatched roof huts.

    A lot of pathetic Middle Easterners are trying their hardest here to claim the Moors are not black, while doing it bringing out their most racist elements. These fuckers are meant to be Muslims, which promotes oneness rather than one race being superior. In real life they are bunch of soyboys who wouldn't do shit in real life when confronted.

    This video lacks so much historical accuracy it's quite sad and horribly put together, plus you throw in some shitty mobile game when talking about countries history? Björn Ironside was a Swedish viking ruler and founder of the dynasty of Munsö, how the fuck can you forgot to mention that and instead talk about Denmark? And the Ru's were Vikings settled in Sweden descending from what is today Roslagen (back then it was called Roden) in lake Mälaren, also Sweden. Please stop pretending you actually know history just because your weird uncle gave you some shitty tomahawk and you bent over to get sponsored by a horrible mobile game. You had so much potential to put focus on the right Norse regions but you most spectacularly fucked up. Danish, Norwegian and Swedish vikings settled in what is today England and did several raids, however danegäld (the tribute you had to pay the vikings) was claimed almost entirely from vikings descending from Sweden or Denmark. Hope you're aware that almost ALL of the "England Runestones" are located in Sweden. How the fuck can you mess this up so bad?
    "The vast majority of the runestones, 27, were raised in modern-day Sweden and 17 in the oldest Swedish provinces around lake Mälaren. In contrast, modern-day Denmark has no such runestones, but there is a runestone in Scania which mentions London. There is also a runestone in Norway and a Swedish one in Schleswig, Germany.
    Some Vikings, such as Guðvér did not only attack England, but also Saxony, as reported by the Grinda Runestone Sö 166 in Södermanland:[1]"

    " The term Danegeld did not appear until the early twelfth century. In Anglo-Saxon England tribute payments to the Danes was known as gafol and the levy raised to support the standing army, for the defence of the realm, was known as heregeld (army-tax). Danegeld was mostly taken by the Norsemen from Sweden and Denmark."

    "The runestone U 241 in Lingsberg, Uppland, Sweden, was raised by the grandchildren of Ulfríkr circa 1050 in commemoration of his twice receiving danegeld in England."

    "The runestone U 344 in Orkesta, Uppland, Sweden, raised in memory of the Viking Ulf of Borresta, says that three times he had taken danegeld in England. The first one was with Skagul Toste, the second one with Thorkell the Tall and the last one with Canute the Great."

    "The runestone U 194, in a grove near Väsby, Uppland, Sweden, was raised by a Viking in commemoration of his receiving one danegeld in England."

    Also another fun fact almost ALL fucking runestones are located in Sweden.

    "The runestones are unevenly distributed in Scandinavia: Denmark has 250 runestones, Norway has 50 while Iceland has none.[4] Sweden has as many as between 1,700[4] and 2,500[3][7] depending on definition. The Swedish district of Uppland has the highest concentration with as many as 1,196 inscriptions in stone, whereas Södermanland is second with 391.[7]"

    "The Rus' people (Old East Slavic: Рѹсь; Modern Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian: Русь (Rus'); Old Norse: Garðar; Greek: Ῥῶς (Rhos)) are generally understood in English-language scholarship as ethnically or ancestrally Scandinavian people trading and raiding on the river-routes between the Baltic and the Black Seas from around the eighth to eleventh centuries CE. Thus they are often referred to in English-language research as "Viking Rus'". The scholarly consensus is that Rus' people originated in what is currently coastal Middle Sweden around the eighth century and that their name has the same origin as Roslagen in Sweden (with the older name being Roden)."

    The reasons for mass migration from muslim countries into Europe is due to America and Russia "intervening" in the middle east and africa as well as idiotic immigration policies by far left EU governments. They're taking in alarming numbers of rapacious, young, single guys and spending millions per year in welfare state money on them while entire families are still stuck in Syria, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere with little to no aid whatsoever.

    And until today they fight each other in the name of self-created identities ...

    It's actually the spanish that asked for help from the Muslims to defeat the viking barbarians, and in few years tariq ibn ziyad defeated the vikings till toledo, and it was the time where andalousia reached greatness, there was freedom of religion and the flourishing of education and science. before the Muslims the spanish were enslaved. and btw tariq ibn ziyad was a white person, yellow hair, and blue eyes, not brown or black, but the berbers that conquered andalousia there was people from diffrent colors. its just so funny how Europeans use their imagination and draw every muslim person who ever lived as a brown angry person even muslims from the ottomans but luckily the ottomans started painting their characters after they knew this.
    Andalousia has many amazing Islamic sites, ive seen the first public garden that was constructed there in the world, the architecture, its just amazing. and ive seen the modern made statuses for great islamic rulers of spain that were constructed by the spanish as a sign of respect of people that accomplished national unity.

    What a great load of crap this video is, please don't call this history! The vikings never raided Cabo Tres Forcas, they raided the kingdom of Nekor which is like 70km to the west (and then continued to Sicily). If any slaves were taken those could in no way be black as this place (called nowadays the Rif) has the whitest people in north Africa, although different in their facial morphology their skin is as white as that of a typical European which the viking had already encountered, so there is no way a writer would have used these people's skin colour to describe them. The name Mauretania is the romanisation of the old berber word Mourt-Nagh which means "our land", it was the name of a kingdom north of what is now known as Morocco and Algeria (and has absolutely nothing to do with black people/the country known today as Mauritania (written with an 'I' instead of an 'E'))... I wonder what other crap you've included in your video!
