Last Kingdom, The - Season 1-3
Not yet reviewed.
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?
Season 2 is based on Bernard Cornwells 3rd and 4th novels from The Saxon Stories. Set in the late ninth century AD, when England was divided into seven separate kingdoms. The Anglo-Saxon lands are attacked and, in many instances, ruled by Danes. The Kingdom of Wessex had been left standing alone. The protagonist Uhtred, the orphaned son of a Saxonnobleman, is captured by Viking Danes and reared as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are constantly tested.
Time is running out for King Alfred to unite the kingdoms. With his health failing and the line of succession uncertain, Alfred looks to our hero Uhtred to ensure his young son Edward becomes the next king. Meanwhile, dark forces are moving outside the court and when a powerful Danish warlord Bloodhair attacks, Uhtred must lead Wessex's forces into battle. Uhtred captures Bloodhair's mysterious lover, the savage sorceress Skade, who throws a curse and his world becomes blighted by tragedy.
