Thorunn Kjetillsdottir was the daughter of Kjetill "Flatnose." She joined her family on Floki's journey to settle in new lands.


Season 5

She was married to Helgi "the Lean" and carrying his child. Like her husband, she attempted to distance herself from the tumultuous feud between their two families. Floki made a heartfelt plea in an attempt to end the infighting amongst the settlers, begging that they resolve their differences for the sake of Thorunn's unborn child. A short time later, she mysteriously vanished from the camp, leaving a despondent Helgi to frantically search for her.

Thorunn's spirit later appeared to Floki as he meditated at Skogafoss. She revealed to him that she had been summoned away by Rafarta, only to be ambushed and killed by Asbjorn, who claimed her unborn child was an abomination. She also told him the exact spot where Asbjorn had buried her. Floki subsequently lead all of the settlers to the location, where they uncovered Thorunn's frozen corpse in a shallow grave.

In History

Thorunn is based on the historical figure Thorunn Ketilsdatter, the daughter of Ketill "Flatnose" Björnsson, and wife of Helgi the Lean. Helgi the Lean was the first settler in Eyjafjordur bay in Iceland.
