One of the highlights of the show is the costumes worn by the ensemble cast. However, historians have termed them as inaccurate. While the show has stylised the costumes worn by the warriors, it is stated that they should have worn more protective gear, than what they originally do in the show.


  • Usage of obsolete languages


The European languages used in the 11th century were very different from what they are today. The show uses four dead languages, to give a sense of reality to the viewers. The scripts of the languages used in the show were translated into Latin, Old Frankish, Anglo-Saxon, etc.

  • No To Faking!


The action scenes are the highlights of the show. Unlike many other shows, the action in this film is real and was carried out by well-trained actors, using real weapons.
