One of the reasons the people of Hedeby turned against Lagertha was because she'd constantly leave them to go off raiding with Ragnar and Bjorn. She didn't have to do that. She couldn't even say that she had to go for family reasons. Rather she chose her personal desires over staying behind and tending to her peoples' needs, and that's why Kalf to persuade them. I think Lagertha likes power, but she doesn't like dealing with the politics and realities of ruling like Aslaug does all the time.
