Lagertha is a powerful and well-known shield-maiden, continuing to fight alongside her former husband and fellow viking fighters, before her great tragedy. Once the devoted wife of the Ragnar Lothbrok, with whom she shared a great love story, deep respect, admiration, and ambitions, Lagertha has since married another after they lost their second and unborn third child.
Since the loss of her children and suffering the blows of love and rejection, Lagertha realizes that Freyja's fertility is meant for another, and that it is the goddess' warrior aspect that speaks to her fellow valkyrie. Lagertha remains fiercely independent when it comes to protecting her family—and the throne.
