Lagertha’s career as a warrior began when Frø (Old Norse Freyr), king of Sweden, invaded Norway and killed the Norwegian king Siward. Freyr put the women of the dead king’s family into a brothel for public humiliation. Hearing of this, Ragnar Lodbrok came with an army to avenge his grandfather Siward. Many of the women Freyr had ordered abused dressed themselves in men’s clothing and fought on Ragnar’s side. Chief among them, and key to Ragnar’s victory, was Lagertha. x

GRRM has written a beautiful growth process of taking a young girl you feel like you want to protect, and then watching her protect herself and grow into her own and turn into a strong woman and leader. And also, the dragons, man! I think the reason she’s such a popular character is the CGI dragons look pretty cool and the magic of them is definitely a quick way of making a character stand out. — Emilia Clarke for AwardsLine
