On this page of the Assassin's Creed Valhalla guide, you will learn how to romance Estrid. We inform you who Estrid is, where you can meet her, what steps you have to take to start romancing her, and is it possible to sleep with Estrid.
You can romance Estrid when playing either gender. You can play as a male or female character – this won't block any of the romance options.
Estrid is the wife of Birstan, the ruler of Essexe. The first meeting with Estrid will take place just after the beginning of the saga (storyline) of the Essexe region. The woman initially stays in Colcestre town.
From the first meetings and the codex entry about Estrid, you will learn that she lives in an unhappy arranged marriage she was forced to do when she was still a young noblewoman. Birstan cares more about expeditions than his own wife. During the quests taking place in Essexe, you will e.g. kidnap Estrid with her permission to help her leave Anglia and return to her homeland.
The chance to sleep with Estrid comes after the fake kidnapping – during the Taken main quest. The conversation with Estrid will take place in a provisional camp. The woman will invite Eivor to speak in private. You have to agree to it before you leave the camp and set off to meet with Birstan during the Twists and Turns main quest.
You will find Estrid sitting on a blanket in the camp, next to a big tree.
From the conversation with Estrid, you will find out that she likes Eivor and that she would like to spend time together. You can choose a dialog option marked with a heart with an arrow to say that you feel the same.
Eivor will sleep with Estrid. Unfortunately, this is only a fleeting affair and once the game is resumed, you will have to continue with the Essexe region's storyline.
