About The Last Kingdom
As previously stated, The Last Kingdom is based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Saxon Stories. Each season follows the events of the first two books; The Last Kingdom and The Pale Horseman.
The protagonist of the story is Uhtred of Bebbanburg, a Saxon boy who is captured by the Danes and ultimately raised as one of their own. Later on in the story, Uhtred betrays the Danes and they suspect that he killed his adoptive father, Ragnar the Elder.
So, Uhtred flees to Wessex, the only one of the seven kingdoms that is not under Danish control. Once he arrives at Wessex, he offers his assistance and intel about the Danes’ battle strategies to Alfred, the Wessex king.
