Have you been enjoying my recaps on History’s Vikings but have always wondered just how much of the show is based on historical fact?
Well, so have I.
As a result of this, I have created the Viking Secrets series which delves into the lives of famous Viking women and partnerships.
The very first novel is based on the historical literature and myths surrounding Lagertha. In modern culture, Lagertha is synonymous with being a headstrong female who can hold her own in battle. In Season 1 of History’s Vikings, Lagertha is already married to Ragnar Lothbrok. So how did they meet? Historically speaking, Ragnar Lodbrok first met her in brothel. Vikings: The Truth about Lagertha and Ragnar will delve into how this event occurred and how Lagertha and Ragnar ended up together.
If you think The Truth Behind: Lagertha will be just another history, you can think again. Each of The Truth Behind books will consist of two parts. The first part will be a fictional retelling of their tale based on their stories and sagas. So, if you are not so much about reading about history and prefer to get your history dose in much the same way History delivers Vikings, than Part One will be just for you! The second part consists of the history behind each character.
Vikings: The Truth about Lagertha and Ragnar is now available to purchase from Amazon.
Lagertha was known to be one of the wives of the famous Viking, Ragnar Lodbrok. But did you know they first met each other at a brothel? And just how long did their marriage last? Was Lagertha really the revered shield maiden we see her as today? The Truth behind: Lagertha aims to unravel all these secrets.
The Truth Behind: Lagertha is so much more than a history book though. While Part One examines the historical facts, Part Two brings her whole story to life with an historically accurate novella of her life.
The Truth Behind series explores the historical fact from present day fiction in regards to the Vikings and other key historical figures that existed in the Viking era.
The Truth Behind: Lagertha aims to discover just how much of what we know of the shield maiden, Lagertha, in popular culture today is actually true.
