Mrs. Carter: Does Ragnar Lothbrok have the time for his two loves?
With Ragnar’s siege on Paris not going exactly as he had thought and losing many of his men and women before finally penetrating the walls of the city, King Lothbrok has a lot on his plate and not all of it is good – the same goes for the two main women in his life.
In the first season of “Vikings” we saw a strong, unbreakable bond between Ragnar and shield maiden Lagertha as they had two small children and another boy on the way, but after his daughter was killed and Lagertha miscarried their second son, Ragnar started to worry that his legacy was going to die out if it was all shouldered by his one son, Bjorn. As time went on, we saw Ragnar meet Aslaug, a beautiful noble woman who caught his interest physically, but also mentally as she was able to outsmart him at his own riddle. They spent one night together, but that was all it took for Aslaug to become pregnant and sail over to Ragnar’s lands to try and take claim over him. Ragnar tried to get away with having both Aslaug and Lagertha as his “wives”, but Lagertha wasn’t going to have it and she packed up Bjorn and left Ragnar behind.
