King Horik

Donal Logue stars as King Horik in History Channel's Vikings

King Horik is based on the historical figure of Horik Gudfredsson, who was a Danish king at the onset of the viking age. The character is played by actor Donal Logue.

We first meet King Horik in Season 1 at Uppsala. He meets Ragnar and asks him for help in regards to a land dispute he is having with Jarl Borg.

In Season 2, his story is expanded on as he has more dealings with Ragnar. However he is a manipulative man who turns Jarl Borg against Ragnar and ultimately this leads to Ragnar turning against King Horik.
