What is The Last Kingdom about?
Set in the 9th century AD, the show is based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories books, with each season after two books’ events. Our hero is Uhtred son of Uhtred, a Saxon boy who’s brought up by Danes, as soon as they catch him and decide to raise him as their own.
But, Uhtred betrayed and the Danes come to believe that he killed his father, the Danish Ragnar the Elder. Uhtred is made to go to Wessex, the only one of the seven kingdoms (which make up what we currently think of as England) that isn’t in Danish control.
Once arrived, he also offers his aid — including comprehension of the Danes’ battle strategies — to the Wessex king, Alfred.
