SynopsisEdit

A story of redemption, vengeance, and self-discovery set against the birth of England, this drama series follows young warrior and outsider, Uhtred on a fierce mission to reclaim his birthright. The Last Kingdom combines real historical figures and events with fiction, re-telling the history of King Alfred the Great and his desire to unite the many separate kingdoms into what would become England.

Pragmatism in AdaptationEdit

In due part to the many characters who have appeared in the books some characters combined, Leofric and Steapa the Clever being one such example, and time skips were employed to keep the cast down to a reasonable level. Furthermore, many set piece battles in the series were changed from sieges and fleet battles to open field battles in order to the keep the show within budget.
