Half-brothers Eric and Einar are sons of the Viking leader Ragnar. Einar is the heir to the throne, while Eric grows up as a slave. Though they have become bitter enemies in battle -- Eric's trained bird has disfigured Einar's face -- neither knows that they are related. During a raid on an English ship, Einar captures Morgana, the daughter of the King of Wales and bride-to-be of the English King. Einar wants her for his own, but she falls in love with Eric. United by blood and separated by hatred, the two brothers face off in a fight for love and power.
