Ragnar Lothbrok has never been good in dealing with his relationships with the opposite sex and it will be proven once again in the fourth season of Vikings.

According to reports, "Vikings" season four will see the Viking king Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) and his wife, Queen Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) trying to reconcile their differences. However, it would appear that they might not be able to settle their problems and end up separating.

The Queen will still be a force to be reckoned with in season four and according to "Vikings" creator, Michael Hirst, the upcoming season will see Aslaug's quest for more power.

"She's had a taste for power while he's been away and when we return in season four, we'll see that she's enjoying that taste," Hirst explains.

There have been rumors that an exotic Chinese traveler named Yidu will be catching Ragnar's eye next season, lending further credence to speculations that Ragnar and his Queen will indeed be ending their relationship.

Unfortunately for Ragnar, his marital problems are the least of his worries as he is still dead set on defeating the King of France. To that end, it would seem that he would be making an uneasy alliance with King Ecbert. While the two kings are temporary allies, they will allegedly realize that they have more in common than they believed.

Another dilemma that Ragnar has to face is his own people turning against him. It has been implied that the King of the Vikings will be forced to step down and his son, Bjorn will be taking over the throne. However, it's unlikely that Ragnar's other son, Ivor, will give up his claim without a fight so some power shifts are expected to happen.

As a matter of fact, Ragnar's children will reportedly come into their own next season so that instead of having one leader, the Vikings might have "four young charismatic leaders to follow."

Season four of "Vikings" is expected to return to the History Channel in 2016.
