Edición brasileña de Breve Historia de los Vikingos


Breve História dos Vikings
(8589309371)
Autor: Manuel Velasco
Editora: VERSAL

Os vikings foram os maiores navegantes, exploradores e mercadores de seu tempo. Suas sagas e poesias constituem o melhor da literatura medieval. Possuíam crenças completas e complexas sobre o mundo sobrenatural e sobre a composição do ser humano, além de terem criado as bases do império russo e chegado à América no ano mil. 'Breve História dos Vikings' acompanha a trajetória desse povo ao longo dos poucos séculos que durou sua existência, desde o assalto ao monastério de Lindsfarne até a batalha de Stamfordbrigde, ambos curiosamente em solo inglês. Apresenta também seus maiores legados, como os barcos, que foram sua grande obra de engenharia, e a escrita rúnica, que ainda guarda um aroma de mistério. O livro destaca, ainda, as características singulares de sua cultura, como as incríveis prerrogativas que tinham as mulheres, além de narrar seu inexorável declínio ante o avanço do cristianismo.

Battle for Asgard

We will listen to the wind 
We will feel to the sea 
Ready to die 
The path ended for me 
We feel fatality 
Hear my cry 
Our weapons are steeped the light 
The sun floods our earths 
Why do I fight? 
This is my site 
No one will take away 

Battle of Asgard 
We are mortal souls 
To rage and fire 
Sent by the gods (x2)


Now we can't afford to fail 
We can't afford to say I can no more! 
And now I begin to change 
My honor and my friends 
This is the first 
Our weapons are steeped light 
The sun floods our earths 
Why do I fight? 
This is my site 
No one will take away 

Battle of Asgard 
We are mortal souls 
To rage and fire 
Sent by the gods (x2) 

Our weapons are steeped light 
The sun floods our earths 
Why do I fight?

No one will take away 

Battle of Asgard 
We are mortal souls 
To rage and fire 
Sent by the gods 

Battle of Asgard 
I dont care the death 
My life make sense 
Only for you (x2)

La Saga de Bosi

Bósa saga ok Herrauds o Saga de Bósi y Herraud es una saga legendaria o epopeya escrita hacia el 1300 preservados en tres manuscritos del siglo XV y relata las aventuras fantásticas de dos amigos, Herraud (nórdico antiguo Herrauðr) y Bósi.

Ésta saga es única debido a la aparición de varias escenas de evidente contenido erótico, hecho que no se da en la misma medida en ninguna otra obra en prosa de la Edad Media islandesa, conectando así esta saga con otras conocidas obras medievales de explícito contenido sexual y burlesco como los célebres fabliaux franceses.
Edición de Miraguano, 2014. 
ISBN: 978-84-7813-411-3

La Saga de Bósi, compuesta hacia 1350, es una de las obras más interesantes y peculiares de la literatura islandesa medieval. Pertenece al género denominado sagas de los tiempos antiguos y es única por la aparición de diversas escenas de evidente contenido erótico, hecho este que no se da en la misma medida en ninguna otra obra en prosa de la Edad Media islandesa. La saga, breve y repleta de acción, narra las fabulosas aventuras de Bósi y su compañero Herrauðr en busca de un misterioso huevo adornado con letras de oro, en cuyo transcurso se describen los famosos encuentros eróticos protagonizados por Bósi y las hijas de distintos campesinos, conectando así esta saga con otras obras medievales de explícito contenido sexual y burlesco como los célebres fabliaux franceses.

Esta edición de la Saga de Bósi, traducida directamente del islandés antiguo, se presenta acompañada de una introducción y abundantes notas realizadas por Mariano González Campo, especialista en lenguas y literaturas nórdicas formado en las universidades de Islandia, Islas Feroe, Gotlandia y Bergen (Noruega).

Funeral vikingo en Wolin


Funeral vikingo en Wolin en honor al Jarl Ulf-Eirik (Jomsvikings)
Wolin Viking funeral in honor Ulf-Eirik Jarl (Jomsvikings)

En junio del 2013 se reunieron en Wolin (Polonia) la Brotherhood of Jomsborg y muchos amigos de diversos países para rendir el último homenaje al Jarl Ulf-Eirik.

In June 2013 they met in Wolin (Poland) the Brotherhood of Jomsborg with many friends from various countries to present their farewell wishes to Jarl Ulf-Eirik.


The fallen Jarl of the Jomsvikings, it was Ulf Eirik's vision which started the Brotherhood of Jomsborg. The Miklagard Ulflag is named after our great Jarl who now resides in Valhalla, following his legacy and ensuring his spirit on Midgard continues to inspire young and old.


His combination of great vision and charisma brought together men and women from around the world and inspired them to build a brotherhood that will endure. He is our eternal lord and it is in his name that we fight, drink and train. It is his spirit for exploration and adventure that drives us to ever greater horizons!

To have clashed steel with Ulf Eirik was to fight one of the great masters of our age, his swordsmanship was that of brilliance. Technical and treacherous, the blade of Ulf Eirik will forever be remembered as legendary, beyond measure of mortal man.


In June 2013, the Brotherhood of Jomsborg together with friends from close and distant shores have come together in Wolin (Poland), to the home of the Jomsviking to present their farewell wishes to Ulf Eirik.

Ulf Eirik was the first Jarl of Jomsborg and one of the founders of the era of the modern viking on a global scale. The send off ceremony saw brothers from Texas, Canada, Germany, France, Poland, Sweden, England, Russia and other lands come together to awaken the slumbering Norse Gods so that the fallen Jarl could cross Bifrost and enter Odin's hall. A formal Norse and Slavic ceremony took place with and several offerings and sacrifices being made followed by the burning of a longship.

This surreal moment will stay forever engraved in the memories of those in attendance despite the heavy partying and reveling that ensued. Later in the night, a heavy thunderstorm roared and rain poured as the Gods were raging with anger at the Norns for their mischievous weaving and cried for they had not seen such a worthy man, entering Valhalla for a thousand years. When dawn came and the fire grew cold, the ashes were gathered and burried beneath a rune stone specially carved in remembrance of the formidable character Ulf Eirik had been. 

Miklagard Ulflag
