The female protagonist of vikings throughout most of the series was Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), who after her divorce from Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) dated other people – and here’s who they were. Historical dramas have become quite popular in recent years, especially on television, and among them is vikingscreated by Michael Hirst. vikings was initially intended to be a miniseries, but the stories of Ragnar, Lagertha, Rollo (Clive Standen) and Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård) caught the public’s attention and the series lived on for a total of six seasons.
During its first four seasons, vikings followed the legendary Norse figure Ragnar Lothbrok through different journeys and raids alongside his Viking brothers. As the series progressed, it shifted its focus to Ragnar’s children and its own journeys, and after Ragnar’s death in Season 4, vikings focused on the journeys and conflicts of and between Björn, Ubbe, Hvitserk, Sigurd and Ivar, who led the series until its final episode. One of the few characters from Season 1 to make it to the final season of vikings (though not towards the end of the series) was Lagertha, the fiercest shield lady and mother of Björn Ironside.
at the beginning of vikings, Lagertha was married to Ragnar and they lived together with their two children – Björn and Gyda – on a farm in Kattegat. Lagertha accompanied Ragnar on different journeys, but on one of them, Ragnar met Aslaug (Alyssa Sutherland) and cheated on Lagertha with her, leading to their divorce. After that, Lagertha dated other characters, but not all of them were good for her. Here are all the characters Lagertha dated in vikings from season 1 until his death in season 6.
During one of Ragnar’s travels in vikings in season one, Ragnar met Aslaug after his men saw her bathe and were reprimanded by her shield maidens. Aslaug demanded an apology from his earl on her behalf, but Ragnar saw it as a challenge the gods sent him and agreed to meet with her if she arrived.neither clothed nor undressed, neither hungry nor full, neither in company nor alone” – then Aslaug arrived dressed in a hammock, biting an apple and with a dog for a companion. Ragnar and Aslaug became lovers, while in Kattegat, Lagertha dealt with the death of many villagers due to the plague, including her daughter Gyda. Lagertha learned of Ragnar’s affair with Aslaug earlier in vikings season 2, but when a pregnant Aslaug arrived in Kattegat, Lagertha decided to leave along with Björn.
While Ragnar had three more children with Aslaug, Lagertha settled in Hedeby and married Count Sigvard (Morten Sasse Suurballe), a domineering, moody, and extremely abusive man. Lagertha confronted him about how he treated her and Björn, but Sigvard responded with more physical abuse. When Lagertha returned after helping Ragnar drive Jarl Borg out of Kattegat, Sigvard accused her of still being in love with Ragnar and berated her for leaving without her permission, and he arranged for her to be beaten and raped by some of her men. After publicly humiliating a beaten and bruised Lagertha, she took a knife and stabbed one of Sigvard’s eyes, after which her nephew Einar decapitated the abusive earl.
Kalf (Ben Robson) was featured in vikings season 3, and he was Lagertha’s trusted second-in-command who ended up betraying her and overthrowing her, taking her place as Earl of Hedeby. After much conflict between them, and Lagertha understandably not trusting him anymore, Kalf made his feelings for her clear, and she made it clear to him that if she accepted his offer, she would kill him one day for usurping her earldom. Inside vikings in season 4, Lagertha revealed that she was pregnant with Kalf’s child, and he proposed to her, but just before the wedding, Lagertha killed Kalf, regaining her Earl status.
While Kalf took Lagertha’s place as earl, Lagertha became briefly involved with King Ecbert (Linus Roache) when he traveled to Wessex. Ecbert wasted no time in showing Lagertha that he was interested in her, and she didn’t reject her attentions. One day, Lagertha returned to Ecbert’s castle, and he invited her, Athelstan (George Blagden), and Judith for a dip in the castle’s Roman baths, and Lagertha and Ecbert were soon on top of each other, prompting Judith and Athelstan to leave. . Lagertha’s affair with Ecbert was very brief, and she later made him realize how little she thought of him.
Astrid (Josefin Asplund) was a squire and second-in-command to Lagertha as part of her court at Hedeby. It was revealed in vikings season 4 that Lagertha and Astrid were lovers, but after Ragnar’s death and comforting Lagertha thereafter, Astrid and Björn became lovers, although she remained a part of Lagertha’s court. Inside vikings in season 5, Astrid was kidnapped by Harald and taken to his kingdom, where she was forced to marry him. Unfortunately, Astrid was sexually abused by many men and became pregnant, and it was unclear whether she was Harald’s son or a product of the attack. Astrid was reunited with Lagertha during the battle, where she revealed her pregnancy to her and told her that she had to die because she couldn’t have that child, and then Lagertha killed her.
Bishop Heahmund (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) was a Saxon bishop and holy warrior. Lagertha teamed up with Heahmund as he was being tended to after the first battle for the Kingdom of Kattegat in vikings season 5, how they had a philosophical conversation. Heahmund later visited Lagertha claiming to want another conversation, but they ended up getting physical and becoming lovers. However, their relationship was kept secret and their long periods of sex caused him to lose focus, and after their affair was caught by Bishop Cuthred’s spies, Heahmund had a vision of hell that caused him to renounce Lagertha. Heahmund died during the Battle of Marton, after being hit by multiple arrows and finished off by Gunnhild.
