Description Scenes & Extras
 
Few kings in English history deserve the tile “great” more than Alfred, King of Wessex.

In an age and country devastated by Viking invasions, Alfred inflicted a major defeat upon the Norseman at Edington in 878 and set about conquering the Danelaw territory to secure the unity of England. The great king also organized his forces into a standing army and built a navy.

However, Alfred was not only a fine warrior and a natural leader; he was also a lawmaker and a scholar, working to improve the kingdom's laws as well as encouraging the further education of his people.

Titles in this series include:
D7100 Alfred the Great
D7101 William the Conqueror
D7102 Richard the Lionheart
D7103 King Henry VIII
D7104 King Charles I
