Perhaps, and others say some Jarls worn it, and some say some Lid regiments (I dunno if its right to call it regiments). I only use it for Gods though.
When vikings fought eachother, I dont think they actually had any army colors (but I can be wrong) probably they fought those who runned from another direction, in small battles they just killed people they didnt recognize.
I found it wierd that not everybody knew this, but the "roundels" as I was informed they were called, has actually been a part of the scandinavian cultures until christianity took over. The earliest findings of these has been from the copper age!
I need to get more info on "ulfhednars" these guys arent mentioned much.
By Oden, I need redbean helmets!
