858 - Vikings plundered in France

Claus Deleuran: Bjorn Ironside vs Charle the bald
France
Bjorn Ironside, set fire to Chartres Cathedral. Charles the Bald gave Danegeld to save Verberie 
Bjorn Ironside (Berno), leader of the vikings swore an oath to be loyal to Charles the bald and he promised to serve him.

Bjorn Ironside`s promise did not effect the viking army at Jeufosse. The viking army continued to pillage and plunder.

In Pamplona the Vikings took the mayor as prisoner and ransomed him for 70,000 silver denarii.

Vikings must have been in northern Spain for much of the summer of 858.
