The stories and Myths about the Vikings are what the Vinland Saga is based on. But since these are not factual in nature and neither is historically correct.

Hence, it can be said that anime has portrayed the characters artistically to suit the story.
Now, here while the various historical characters and events like battles are accurate on time and names, the backstories are different or say less accurate. The History of Vikings describes them as warriors, violence, etc. But, ironically in the series, the theme is more towards non-violence. It mainly focuses on Thorfinn’s personal development and events occurring relating to that. Therefore, it is seen that the characters are still similar in names as well as context. While the events are less accurate, like we have no record of Thorfinn’s father being killed, all we know is that he was a great trader and sea captain.
