vikings actually had a good history. they were the first europeans in the americas. think about that! also they weren't all barbarians, as some call them, some were scholars a…nd just as smart as the people who hated them.
Answer . People worship gods for many reasons, perhaps originally because this gave them some control over their lives. They could call on their gods to ensure a good crop,… a victory in war, help in a crisis or any other worthwhile purpose.. Some people continue to worship the gods of their parents because they have never stopped to really consider whether there really are any gods. Those who enquire may come to the realisation that there is no god, but religion also provides some people with comfort and a sense of purpose. There is diversity in religion because there is no objective proof that one religion and its God or gods are more true than another.
A person or thing that lives in asgard Answer: The Vikings were polytheistic They had a pantheon of gods each with their own area of control, interest or purpose. original…ly there were two groups of gods, the Ãsir and the Vanir. After a war thee two groups united. Vikings also acknowledged an opposing force of giants who were at war with the gods and many mystic creatures like Fenrir the wolf, the Midgard Serpent, trolls, elves ad so on. The Vikings gods are familiar to us today: Thor, Odin, Freya gave their names to days of the week
If by "History" you mean where did this God come from? or which God and Goddess was this God's parents? you would be better off looking up and studying the information yoursel…f. The reason I'm saying this is because like the Greek and Roman Gods the Norse Gods and religion is huge and diverse and if I or anyone were to take the time to write it all down here the answer(s) would be about the length of a book by the time it was all written. There are plenty of sites about the Norse Gods as well as their are books on the subject. I suggest you make you're own investigation into this question.

Vikings were sea-going explorers & sea raiders. By virtue of such men leaving and returning constantly from far shores, they inherently brought back with them to their homelan…ds new ideas, new theories, new items, medicines, foods, machines, languages, etc.
the only god i know of was "Thor God of Lightning" same thing as zues basically and "Loke God of Mischief"
The largest is uncertain, however here are some large vikingarmies: - the Norwegian army during the battle of stamford bridge - est.300 ships, 15 000 men - The great heathen …army - No reference to the actual size of ithas been found other than about 350 longships - (Not really a viking army) but The norman army under the battleof heistings - est. 7 000 - 10 000 men Vikings are not really known to have had very large armies. Thevikings usually operated with smaller armies doing hit and runraids near coastal regions. The larger armies in the viking timewas mostly coalitions of several smaller local armies to achivecommon goals.
Yes, they do such as Thor

In Greek and Roman Mythologies
Odin Odin was the chief god in the Norse mythology, and the father of Thor, Balder, Hoder, Tyr, Bragi, Heimdall, Ull, Vidar, Hermod and Vali. His wives were Fjorgyn, Frigga …and Rind. He had a bad habit to roam around Midgard in human disguise seducing and impregnating women. This is why many mortals were able to trace their ancestry back to him. Thor Thor was the son of Odin and Fjorgyn. He was the god of thunder, the sky, fertility and the law. Armed with his strength-giving items, a belt and the hammer MjÃ¶lnir, he had a simple way of righting wrongs: he more or less killed everything that moved. The other gods -mostly Loki- occasionally took advantage of Thor's simplicity. Loki Loki can be called the 'wizard of lies' and is in many ways the most interesting god in Asgard. Loki was related to Odin, but their relationship was rather strange. He came to Asgard either as of right or because Odin and he entered into a blood-brotherhood. Frey Frey was a fertility god of the the Vanir race. He was the son of Njord and came to Asgard as a hostage along with his father and sister Freya. Freya Freya was the goddess of sex and later also war and death. She married the god Od, who deserted her. After being abandoned she divided her time between mourning his absence and being promiscuous. Idun The goddess of spring and immortal youth was called Idun. She was the daughter of the dwarf Ivald and married to the god Bragi. Sif Sif was the goddess who married Thor and bore his stepson (by Odin), Ull. The vikings (and their gods) admired golden hair, and she was exceptionally proud of hers, so Loki cut it all off while she was asleep. Hel Hel was a goddess (or a monster), a daughter of Loki and Angrboda, who ruled over Niflheim, which was the land of the dead. There were different opinions of whether she was alive or dead. Ull, in his role as god of winter, was supposed to spend a few months each year as Hel's lover. Hel and her ghostly army were going to support the other gods at Ragnarok, after which her domain would go out in flames.
The Germanic Mythology includes A LOT of gods. Thor was the most popular during the viking age. See related link for Simple Wikipedia's list of Norse deities.
