@ACVE This only applied to Norse women. Vikings, which was the name of a profession, not a people) were free to rape whomever they liked when they sacked a village. And, of course, the differences in social status between the man and the woman were important: a high ranking man was much less likely to be punished than a low ranking man, especially if the woman was of lower rank than he.
