Viking Society was structured, in Viking Society by Rob Shackleford

In the early Viking Age, society was structured, but no national Viking kings existed. There were three broad social classes: the nobles or jarls, the middle class or karls and the slaves or thralls.

The medieval freemen, the karls, were among the few who, over time, could move among classes, at least among the lower ones. As the Viking Age progressed, power began to centralize in the hands of a few strong leaders, who became the kings of Sweden, Norway and Denmark beginning in the 9th century. Kingship, however, didn’t become a strong centralizing force until later.

Next Blog will better describe the fate and lives of Thralls.

About the author:

 

Rob Shackleford is the author of a number of novels, though so far only Traveller Inceptio has been officially published. As Traveller Inceptio looks at the fates of modern historical researchers sent to the early 11th Century Saxon world, Vikings do feature.

I have recently moved Publishers, and are publishing new books over the coming year. Here are the Amazon links for the two novels so far.

In reading my novels, I ask if you wouldn’t mind posting a review and, perhaps, a picture of yourself with my book – either paperback or on kindle.

I hope you enjoy.
