We all love "Vikings" for their adventurous spirit, their battles, for the opportunity to immerse ourselves into the ancient culture, and, of course, for an amazing cast! 

We could dig up some interesting facts about the actors' private lives! Are Ragnar and Lagertha dating in real life? Who is the main womanizer? Whose brothers are famous Hollywood stars? Let's find out!

TRAVIS FIMMEL (RAGNAR LOTHBROK)

Fimmel confirmed he previously dated Nicole Appleton when the actor said Hello! that she "dumped" him. In 2016, Fimmel was spotted leaving a party in Soho with Gina Gershon, but no confirmed girlfriends as of late.

Loyal and beautiful Helga captured the hearts of many with her devotion when Floki was punished for the murder of Athelstan. We wonder if the actress Maude Hirst is anything like her character.

Maude Hirst went through a hard breakup a few years ago, and it led her on the path of self-discovery and healing she said changed her life. 

Consequently, Hirst became trained in meditation, yoga, and various forms of energy healing. To bring all her talents together, the actress created her website EnergyRise.

The actress reportedly dated Nick Loeb back in 2015, and Katheryn is yet to make her romance with the businessman official on social media.
