Attendees will also be able to pick up a comic book from Titan Comics inspired by "Knightfall" entitled "Truth & Lies," a prequel to the events in the forthcoming series that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom - the Holy Grail.

About "Vikings"

From creator and sole writer Michael Hirst (Academy Award(R) winning film Elizabeth and the Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominated series "The Tudors"), "Vikings" is a family saga that tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages. The last season of HISTORY's longest-running drama series, "Vikings," averaged 4.1 million total viewers, finishing as the #1 original series on cable on Wednesday nights (Live+7). Jonathan Rhys Meyers joins the stellar cast for season five along with Katheryn Winnick, Gustaf Skarsgard, Alexander Ludwig and Alex Høgh Andersen. Season five is slated to air later this year on HISTORY.

"Vikings" is an international Irish/Canadian co-production by World 2000 and Take 5 Productions. MGM Television serves as the worldwide distributor outside of Ireland and Canada. "Vikings" is produced in association with Corus Entertainment.

About "Knightfall"

"Knightfall" follows the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity's most prized relic - the Holy Grail - and harboring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. "Knightfall" goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th - a date which became synonymous with bad luck - the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. "Knightfall" takes viewers inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

"Knightfall" is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield and Richard Rayner serve as creators and executive producers, with Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Jeremy Renner also serving as executive producer. Dominic Minghella is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers from Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg. Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. The drama stars Tom Cullen ("Downton Abbey"), P�draic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, "The Tudors"), Simon Merrells ("Spartacus," "Dominion"), Olivia Ross (War and Peace), Ed Stoppard ("The Crown"), Sabrina Bartlett ("DaVinci's Demons"), Jim Carter ("Downton Abbey") and Julian Ovenden ("Downton Abbey").
