Though when it comes to his death, the show added more than just a touch of fantasy.
Bjorn, who died in season six of the show, was killed by Ivar who stabbed him with a sword, though he didn’t die on the spot and managed to pull one final trick on his enemies.
The wounds were so severe though that he eventually passed away.
As for his real-life counterpart, there are no records on how he died, so it’s safe to assume that he didn’t suffer such a gruesome yet legendary death, but probably died of old age or illness.
