Steve Wall is Einar
Einar is one of Hedeby warriors as well as the nephew of Earl Sigvard.
After Lagertha stabbed Sigvard in the eye for his abuse on her, Einar beheaded his uncle instead of killing Lagertha. Lagertha was then chosen as the new Earl of Hedeby instead of Einar.
Later, Einar came to a naked Lagertha, insinuating that he had declined his uncle position in exchange for Lagertha’s sexual favors. But Lagertha told him that he wasn’t chosen as the new Earl because even his own family viewed him as a failure and consequently hadn’t supported his claim.
After Lagertha departure to Wessex in order to claim the land promised by King Ecbert, Einar plotted with Kalf, Lagertha’s second-in-command in Hedeby, in order to usurp her power.
