About Lagertha From Vikings

Having run for six seasons between the years 2013 and 2020, Vikings is a hit historical drama television show on The History Channel. The show was inspired by tales of early medieval Norsemen warriors in the region of Scandinavia. It follows the story of Ragnar Lothbrok, and his family, and descendants throughout his journey to becoming King of the Vikings. It is believed that Ragnar Lothbrok was descended from the god of war Odin himself. In the show, Lagertha is played by Katheryn Winnick and is the former wife of Ragnar Lothbrok. She is also a fierce warrior who battles alongside his men, and mother to his two children, Bjorn and Gyda. 

She is extremely protective over those who are too weak to defend themselves such as children and unarmed women. But when Lagertha is in battle, she is a bloodthirsty fighting machine who kills and maims ruthlessly.
