Ragnar was born in 0765. Ragnar Sigurdsson ... He passed away in 0845.  death Date: 845, Place: Snake, Pit, Northumberland, England Age: 79-80 via snakebite Many acts ascribed to Ragnar in the Gesta can be associated, through other sources, with various figures, some of which are more historically certain. These candidates for the "historical Ragnar" include:
King Horik I (d. 854), King Reginfrid (d. 814),
a king who ruled part of Denmark and came into conflict with Harald Klak, one Reginherus who attacked Paris in the middle of the ninth century, possibly the Reghnall of the Irish Annals, and the Viking leader whose death caused his sons to invade England with the Great Heathen Army in 865.
- Ancestor of Anne of Kiev, Queen of France.
- Wikipedia: A historic Ragnar Lodbrok is held to have been a jarl at the court of the Danish king Horik I (814-854), and this Ragnar participated in the Viking plunderings of Paris in 845.
Katherine Holman, on the other hand, concludes that "although his sons are historical figures, there is no evidence that Ragnar himself ever lived, and he seems to be an amalgam of several different historical figures and pure literary invention."
Ragnar was according to the sagas married to or had children with five women, and first wife according to Völsungasaga was semi-legendary female Danish viking and shieldmaiden Lathgertha, and they had the son: Fridleiv Ragnarsson
His second wife was Åslaug Sigurdsdatter ((also called Kråka) and they had the children:

France Expedition In 845 he sailed southward, looking for new worlds to conquer. With an alleged force of 120 ships and 5,000 Viking warriors, he landed in what is now France, probably at the Seine estuary, and ravaged West Francia, as the westernmost part of the Frankish Empire was then known. Rouen was ravaged and then Carolivenna, a mere 20 km from St. Denis. The raiders then attacked and captured Paris. The traditional date is March 28, which is today referred to as "Ragnar Lodbrok Day" by certain followers of the Asatru religion. The King of West Francia, Charlemagne's grandson Charles the Bald, paid Ragnar a huge amount of money not to destroy the city. Ragnar Lodbrok, according to Viking sources, was satisfied with no less than 7,000 pounds of silver in exchange for sparing the city. However, that did not stop Ragnar from attacking other parts of France, and it took a long time for the Franks to drive him out. Later, Ragnar's sons were to return for more booty. Among their feats was destroying the city of Rouen several more times. Ultimately, many of them settled there permanently, in a land that became known as Normandy (deriving from the expression "Nordmenn" , or 'Northmen' ('Norsemen'), which was - and indeed still is - both the name the Norwegians called themselves and also the name the Franks used for the Scandinavians.
