The Vikings raided France, England, Scotland, Ireland and they raided the Middle East as well. When they went into Lebanon, they left their genetics behind and when you travel through the back roads of England, you will see colorful Nordic longboats in canals. One of the more famous world figures of Viking stock was William the Conqueror who became King of England. He was in Northern France before he invaded England. From this Viking descendant we have the current Royal House of Windsor, Queen Elizabeth and her children, including Princess Kate and Prince William. Convincing evidence shows the Vikings made it to North America long before Columbus, whether or not they “mixed” with the Native population that long ago, I do not know.
