Gunnhild arrives in Kattegat along with her children, presumably to cement the alliance between her husband and Earl Ragnar Lothbrok. In fact, King Horik plans a coup d'état against the earl of Kattegat.
As a shieldmaiden, she's about to join in the intended slaughter of Ragnar's family, but is intercepted by Lagertha and her forces. In a one-on-one duel, Gunnhild is killed by Lagertha by slashing her abdomen before impaling her. Shortly thereafter, King Horik and five of their children are murdered.
- Drottning was the Old Norse term for queens.
