Great Viking Army in England, 865-878 CE

Map showing the routes allegedly taken by the Great Viking Army that invaded the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms in 865 CE, under leadership of such chieftains as 'Hingwar', 'Hubba', and 'Halfdene' (Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for 870-871 CE). These figures have been equated with the sons - Ivar the Boneless, Ubbe, and Halfdan (or Hvitserk) - of the legendary Viking hero Ragnar Lothbrok. The Viking invasion clashed, among others, with King Ælla of Northumbria (r. c. 866 CE) as well as Alfred the Great, King of Wessex (871-899 CE).
