—Rollover text

Greta Forkbeard is the daughter of Chieftain Forkbeard, and is featured only in the Union scenario of the Fall of the Trident campaign Age of Mythology. She must be rescued by destroying a Guard Tower in the southern region of the map.

She has only 20% armor against all attacks, including crush, making her very vulnerable to siege attacks and cannot fight back.


  • Greta Forkbeard makes a second appearance in the scenario Respect in Age of Empires III as Greta, the distressed daughter of the Lakota Chief, still having her winning personality.
  • She looks identical to a female Gatherer with red hair, even though she has blonde hair on her icon.
  • According to her detailed help section, she is countered with "Hair Products" and can be upgraded at "Any Salon".
  • The Golden Fleece, Greta Forkbeard, two Relic Monkeys, a Baboon, a reindeer with a Santa hat and a snowman make a cameo in Trapped on Titan. Players can find them from Zhi to the right in the mountains.
    • The units have special names; the Golden Fleece is called "Shaun da Sheep", Greta is called "Jiving Jess", the Baboon is called "Steve", the Relic Monkeys are called "Funky Sambo" and "Tin", and the reindeer is called "Bonnie & Clinton".
