About This Item
Over the ages, there have been many stories and untruths told about the mythical shieldmaiden, Lagertha.
This is not one of those stories.
As a fearsome shieldmaiden, Lagertha is first sighted by the revered Viking leader Ragnar Lodbrok on the battleground, where he is instantly captivated. Their complicated love story grows from there as Ragnar struggles to lead a war-torn area and Lagertha battles her own demons.
Along with the fictional retelling, the real story of Lagertha and Ragnar Lodbrok is unraveled using the historical evidence. Therefore, readers can also discover the facts behind the fantasy in order to find out many tantalizing truths about this couple.
For example, this book will reveal how long their marriage really lasted and whether Lagertha was actually the revered shieldmaiden we see her as today.
And, did you know the pair first met at a brothel?
In addition, learn how much of what we know of Lagertha and Ragnar in popular culture today is true.
Vikings: The Truth About Lagertha And Ragnar will unravel all of these secrets and more.
