Rollo, in the shadow of his brother
Rollo is one of the main characters of the TV series Vikings. This series, broadcast on the History channel in the United States, is loosely based on the story of the legendary Viking king Ragnar Lothbrok. Rollo is Ragnar’s brother, like him he is a fierce warrior but he is much more impulsive and less thoughtful than his brother. Since the beginning of the series, his feelings towards his brother are divided. If he decides to follow him during his first raids to England, he has also always been jealous of his relationship with Lagertha whom he has always been in love with. When Ragnar starts to take more power in the village of Kattegat, his jealousy will grow and for a while he will even betray his brother to join another clan. Even though he will always end up joining his brother, Rollo will always be ambitious and will always tend to enter into relationships based on what they can bring him. In this, the character is particularly interesting because his motivations are always difficult to understand.
