Gotafrid Fairrobes (died 870s) was a Norse drengr who served under Ragnar Lothbrok in the Great Heathen Army alongside five trusted lieutenants during the raids that were part of the Viking expansion into England.

Biography

Gotafrid was a celebrated drengr who was personally taught by Ragnar to keep his dignity both in battle and in his equipment's upkeep. Gotafrid would maintain this "self-respect" even after Ragnar's passing.[1]

After the death of his friend and leader, Gotafrid was left wandering England without a cause or goal.[2] He sought a warrior willing to take part in a honorable and clean battle to the death. Eventually, he encountered the shieldmaiden Eivor Varinsdottir of the Raven Clan, who accepted his challenge. After a long fight, Eivor managed to defeat him, ending his life and sending him to meet with Ragnar in Valhalla.[1]
