That’s one of my reasons for loving this show- Lagertha. Tall, proud, strong, and a leader in her own right. I love the way Katheryn Winnick plays Lagertha and how the writers constructed her role. I was surprised to learn that historically the character of Lagertha is real. Lagertha really was a shield maiden as well as Ragnar’s wife. So both Lagertha and Katheryn make great role models for our young women. I may have to look away during the gore and violence but I watch Vikings anyway.
Looking forward to the return of this show. On another twitter forum someone said that if Jamie is descended from Vikings then Jenny’s ancestors must be a shield maidens.
