About The Last Kingdom:
This show takes place in the 9th century AD. Every season shows the events from two books. The protagonist, aka, the hero is Uhtred, son of Uhtre. He is a Saxon boy, brought up by Danes. The Danes capture him and take the decision to raise him as their own.
Although Uhtred later betrays them. The Danes believe that he kills his adoptive father. He is the Danish warlord Ragnar, the Elder. Uhtred is then forced to travel to Wessex, the only one of the seven kingdoms that aren’t in Danish control.
Once he gets there, he offers his assistance. This is inclusive of the knowledge that he holds of the Danes’ battle strategies. He offers this to the Wessex king, Alfred.
