As lots of the personalities’ plots were wrapped throughout the sport, VIKINGS SEASON 6 PART 2 was full of surprises. The final part of the historic drama was Vikings season part 2 and viewers were sad to find the favourite show come to a conclusion.
Hvitserk’s (played by Marco) storyline took a dramatic turn in the series finale when he was baptised at King Alfred’s petition (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo). Was Hvitserk baptized? Michael Hirst, the show’s producer, announced something exclusively to Express.
Was Hvitserk Baptised For Real?
As Hirst had sworn that an action-packed finale, the next half of the Vikings’ final season featured a few twists and turns. The previous ten episodes saw the death of Alexander Ludwig (the powerful Bjorn Ironside) and Alex Hogh Andersen (the persistent Ivar the Boneless). In season six, Hvitserk’s character saw real growth as he came to the understanding that he was destined to destroy Ivar.
Nevertheless, Ivar understood that his passing would be at the hands of another when it came down to the final moments of the season. Alfred ended up saving the life span of Hvitserk because he had a deeply rooted history with Ragnar Lothbrok’s sons (Travis Fimmel).

Instead, he asked Hvitserk to return to his kingdom with Aelswith (Roisin Murphy) and his wife, where he’d renounce his Pagan ways. During the baptism, Hvitserk is then seen, receiving the new name Athelstan to reveal he has fully accepted Christianity.
The series was inspired by historic figures and Hvitserk as Ragnar’s real boy, but his ultimate destiny in the series was very different from actual life.” Hirst said, “Alfred’s wife cautioned that the Vikings would return and make peace and break it. The excellent fight is fought against a descendant of Ragnar called Guthrum to get Alfred as a historical personality. He had been arrested, and he agreed to be baptised, and his vow was retained.
For a few years, he lived with Alfred’s family and it showed that Alfred’s instincts were sound. Not all have the Vikings been wicked men and women. I set Hvitserk in that role, I don’t think he had been engaged in a constant war, I always knew he would give peace in the end of the struggle and he’d mean it.
For him, it’d be a deep thing. After all these years of wandering blindly, he finally found his individuality. Before the final season, fans had mixed views of Hvitserk’s character, claiming he still had to demonstrate himself as Ragnar’s real son.
