Who knows, Ragnar, what the gods have in store for us. But this, I can never imagine. If you have gone to Heaven, then we will never meet again. And yet, I think Odin will ride like the wind, and rescue you, and take you to Valhalla, where you belong, my own sweet Ragnar. And there, there we shall meet again, and fight and drink and… love one another.
I hoped the day would never come when I had to bid you farewell. You were always my strength, my guide. You taught me to go on, no matter what. You taught me not to be afraid. And now I see that, like me, the earth itself is unwilling to let you go. But the gods call you home. They eagerly await your arrival in Valhalla, as does my father. I wish I could be there at your reunion, secretly, in Odin’s glittering, gold-shielded hall, surrounded by all the gods. You are already a legend. The greatest shieldmaiden of all time. A hero to thousands of women. But, to me, you will always be my mother, who bore me, who raised me, who protected and fought for me. And I swear, I will fight for you now! Farewell. I have loved you more than I have loved any other. Farewell, Lagertha. Farewell. I love you. I will miss you. I will avenge you.
You are already a legend, the greatest shieldmaiden of all time. A hero to thousands of women… Farewell, Lagertha. Farewell.
