Astrid was in Lagertha's circle in Hedeby. The latter trained Astrid in the arts of war and the arts of love. Ragnar arrived in Hedeby and met Astrid. He apologizes to Lagertha, because she did not agree to go to England with him. After he leaves, Astrid and Lagertha continue dating before they move to Kattegat.

Astrid decides to get revenge by ambushing Ragnar's sons Ubbe and Sigurd and threatening to kill them after Ubbe fails to fight off Ragnar's guards. But after all, Lagertha managed to retake Kattegat and establish herself as queen, killing Auslaug.

Astrid is abducted by Harald and leads her into his kingdom. She is forced to marry Harald in order to stay alive. She therefore became queen of Vestfold-Rogaland. Later, she is raped by several men and announces it to Harald. Some time later, she became pregnant. There is no evidence yet who the father really is, Harald or any of the rapists. Astrid confesses to Lagertha that she does not want this child. She throws herself at Lagertha and the latter runs through her with her sword. This is how Astrid and her unborn baby are killed by her ex-lover, Lagertha. Ivar the Boneless is the winner of this battle. Lagertha and her army flee to Kattegat.
