The Last Kingdom is on Netflix now and the popular Anglo-Saxon series has been renewed for season five. The series, based on The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, follows "Dane Slayer" Uhtred of Bebbanburg (played by Alexander Dreymon). In the series, Uhtred has a sister called Thyra (Julia Bache-Wiig) and she suffered a terrible fate.
Thyra was one of the main characters in The Last Kingdom and she also played a role in Cornwell's books as the daughter of Earl Ragnar (Peter Gantzler).
She starred in a total of 13 episodes between seasons one and three, but she remains one of the best-loved characters.
Thyra had been kidnapped by Sven (Ole Christoffer Ertvaag), an antagonist in the series, and she spent a long time held captive in a cage with her pet dogs.
In season two Uhtred and his brother Ragnar (Tobias Santelmann) managed to track down Thyra but she blamed her brothers for not attempting to rescue her.
Father Beocca (Ian Hart) managed to console her and they end up forming a strong relationship, with the priest eventually asking Thyra to marry him.

Thyra almost died during a Dane attack on Coccham but thankfully she managed to run to safety.
This was until season three when Thyra was taunted by Tidman (Ciáran Owens) from Wessex who told her she had no place in King Alfred's (David Dawson) company.
She ran home and bolted the door for safety but Tidman followed her, and she hid herself under the floorboards in the house.
Tidman spotted her under the floorboards and she stabbed him, but he had already set the house on fire, leaving Thyra trapped.
So she did not burn to death, she ended up taking her own life by stabbing herself with her own knife.
Fans found her demise particularly brutal and they were shocked to see her leave the series.
