Teach that boy how to defend himself. No one likes the third son of a dead king.[to Osbert, about Edmund]
No king will form England. This is what I see now. Not Edmund or Edward or Alfred. Not even Aethelstan. Alfred’s dream was of a united people.
I have no wish to be written into your history. I want only to be honored in the feast hall for standing by an oath.[Aethelstan: I have told the chroniclers to write of your victory, Uhtred.]
Watch now on:
Do we finally face defeat? All the warrior kings that I’ve known, Ubba, Cnut, Bloodhair, all have faced defeat in the end and have taken others with them.[to Sihtric]
