In 1561, she was married to the nobleman Joakim Fleming and given the estate Eknaholm outside Växjö, which had belonged to a monastery, and the relationship ended and continued after she became a widow in 1563. The relationship was not exclusive, as Eric had a large number of other mistresses; the period 1561-65, Anna Larsdotter, Karin Jacobsdotter, Karin Pedersdotter, Sigrid Nilsdotter, Doredi Valentinsdotter and the more anonymous Britta and Ingrid was all listed as the King's mistresses, but Agda was his main mistress. The position of these women was only half official.
She had several daughters with Eric and one daughter with Joakim, Anna, (born 1562). In 1561, the custody of her children was given to the king's sister, Princess Cecilia of Sweden, because: "I know she is not capable of raising them in good discipline and other things". When Cecilia left the country in 1564, the care, as well as the care of the other children of Eric, was given to Princess Elizabeth of Sweden; one of Elizabeth's servants, Karin Månsdotter, took care of Virginia. In 1565, Karin became the one and only mistress of Eric and replaced both Agda and all the others. Agda remarried Christoffer Olsson Stråle av Sjöared, sheriff of Stegeborg.
