Brothers Ragnar and Rollo stand above the rest
They wrote, "A lot of people think It is Rollo and there is nothing wrong, they were pretty close but I would go with Ragnar because he had more precision and skill when fighting."
No matter how brilliant a tactician Ivar the Boneless was, there's little doubt that Bjorn was a better overall fighter - it's even in his name, as he was dubbed 'Ironside' due to his seeming inability to be killed or harmed in battle.
Rollo is Ragnar's older brother and was known as a fearsome Viking warrior with an impulsive streak and a lot of internal struggles, which often shone through his violent actions.
Ivar The Boneless
He had to work harder than the rest of Ragnar's sons to become the powerful man he was but when he finally learned, he became the best.

Jarl Borg. Jarl Borg hasn't been on the show in a few seasons, but it's a testament to his legacy that fans are still referring to him. He earned his position as one of the strongest characters ever with just one incredible scene.

Did Ragnar fight Rollo in real life?
Although portrayed in the TV series as the brother of Ragnar Lothbrok, in actuality, according to the Norse sagas, Rollo is completely unrelated to the 9th century legendary Norse chieftain.
Ragnar is undoubtedly the most intelligent character who manages to outwit many enemies before finally accepting his death at the hands of (you guessed it) one of his enemies.
Probably the most important Viking leader and the most famous Viking warrior, Ragnar Lothbrok led many raids on France and England in the 9th century.

Ragnar Lothbrok's favorite son
Bjorn is Ragnar's first son and definitely his favorite. His mother, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), is Ragnar's first wife and the love of his life.
After Bjorn takes the crown, he's visited by the Seer and told of his future. “No one will ever forget the name of Bjorn Ironside, greater than Ragnar,” the Seer says.
According to the Vikings, though, Ivar the Boneless would still fight with them in the vanguard as a show of courage lofted on a shield even though his body was practically useless. Norse legend says their first battle with Northumbria ended with Ælla and Ivar making a deal.
Fans have watched him grow up from a young 12-year-old kid to become the King of Kattegat, but it isn't until the final episodes of Vikings that Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) finally proves himself as the heir to his warrior father Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel).
According to the sagas, Bjorn was the son of Ragnar and Aslaug, and brother to Hvitserk, Ivar (who unlike what the series showed, was older than him), and Sigurd “Snake in the Eye”.
Aslaug is also a seer of sorts. She has her own gift for telling the future and that in itself is full of hidden details and things that seem to be coincidence later on.
