In 844 A.D., Norsemen raiders (commonly referred to as “Vikings”) attacked al-Andalus, sacking Cadiz, Lisbon, Medina Sidonia before capturing Seville. They maintained their control over Seville for a little over a month before being defeated by an army sent by the Umayyad emir, ‘Abd al-Rahmān II (r. 822–852) to repel them. The battle, according to most accounts, was quite fierce and ended in the victory of Andalusi Muslims over a large Viking force consisting of about 15,000 men. Following the retreat, the emir—recognizing the vulnerability of his kingdom to raids and seeking to avoid future confrontations within his own territory—ordered the construction of a navy (the first of its kind in al-Andalus) and sent emissaries to initiate peace talks with the Vikings. There is a lot of dispute about the origins of the Norsemen who reached al-Andalus. If they were Norwegian, their raids would most likely have been launched from Ireland, while Danes would have most likely have set out from the territory comprising modern-day Denmark. The surviving account of the Andalusi embassy—included below (which is a slightly revised version of W.E.D. Allen’s)—is also ambiguous on this point and mentions only that the Norse monarch’s court was located on an “island” (which could signify either Ireland, where the chieftain Turgesius/Turgeis [d. 845)] was based, or the island of Zealand, where the court of King Horik I [d. 854] was located). I am personally inclined to believe that it was to the Vikings in Ireland that this account refers, due to some of the details provided within the text.
For me, the most interesting part is what the arabs called VIKINGS, and I guess, those who are associated with INDO EUROPEAN history, would also get intersted at this point.
For one thing the account, in contrast with Ibn Fadlan (who designates them Rūs), refers to the Norsemen as majūs (the Arab-Islamic term for “Zoroastrian) and ascribes distinctly Zoroastrian practices—“fire-worship” and the marriage between siblings—to the pre-Christian Norse faith.
The point is this, that why VIKINGS were following the culture of AHURA MAZDA or VEDIC SHUKRA, because, zoroaastrian was introduced by DARIUS THE GREAT, who himself was an ARYAN.
Which means, we need to search more on the history of vikings, because, their own accounts have preserved the culture of INDO EUROPEANS in ICELANDIC language, along with RIG VEDAS, the CHRONCILES of INDO EUROPEAN CIVILIZATIONS.
vikings derived their ancestry from odin, this confirms my findings that odin, ahura mazda and vedic shukra were same people.
odin is known have led expedition to the scandinavian nations, from north eurasian regions, the real place from where indo europeans migrated
The name of the æsir is explained as "men from Asia," Asgard being the "Asian city" (i.e., Troy). Alternatively, Troy is in Tyrkland (Turkey, i.e., Asia Minor), and Asialand is Scythia, where Thor founded a new city named Asgard. Odin is a remote descendant of Thor, removed by twelve generations, who led an expedition across Germany, Denmark and Sweden to Norway.
