Storyline

The year is 872, and many of the separate kingdoms of what we now know as England have fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. Against this turbulent backdrop lives our hero, Uhtred. Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. What is he? Saxon or Dane? On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands...

Trivia

Under "Anachronisms" it says the fleur de lis could not have been used as a symbol on Alfred's crown, but that isn't entirely true. The symbol is an ancient one, not exclusive to France. It Has been used in many forms, from irises to ears of corn which symbolize fertility and are most definitely used in the Danish Eddas and herald the arrival of Beowulf. See more »

Goofs

The symbol for the House of Wessex is wrong. It is a well documented fact that they used the Golden Dragon with a red background - especially on flags and banners. See more »
