Take Five #17 Vikings: Lagertha

For whatever reason I wasn't drawn to The History Channel's scripted drama Vikings which chronicles Ragnar Lothbrok's rise from lowly farmer/raider to feared and respected king when it first aired. But once I began the journey, it quickly became one of my favorite shows, and Ragnar's shield-maiden wife Lagertha, my favorite character. Lagertha' got it all: looks, bravery, motherly instincts, and a warrior's spirit. So just how hot is she?
