Synopsis

This film chronicles the life and times of King Alfred, who lived from 849 to 899 A.D. Alfred, the only English king ever to be called "the Great," is remembered for his resistance to and victory over the attempted domination of the Vikings. He defeated the Norsemen and protected the unity of England. King Alfred is also known for his love of learning. He encouraged the bishops of the Anglo-Saxon church to teach the citizens of the realm to become literate. Alfred himself translated a number of ecclesiastical works from the Latin and added his own commentary. His story is told with commentary from historians, historical reenactments, and period imagery and artworks. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
