“It was under Alfred the Great and his immediate successors. Unifying an Anglo-Saxon kingdom where it first began,” said Thrones of Britannia Game Director, Jack Lusted. “As the only major kingdom left standing after the Viking Invasion. It was under the banner of Wessex that the lands the Great Viking Army had conquered. Known as the Danelaw, were retaken. The name of this kingdom changed from Wessex to England.”
The Anglo-Saxons had conquered the land and united the people. While mixing and merging cultures originally from Germany, Scandinavia, and Europe.
“The reconquest of the Danelaw led to an adoption of many elements of Viking culture. Some of which persist today. A number of towns across Northern England bear Viking names for instance. And there are well over a hundred common English terms that go back to Nordic origins.”
This new English kingdom would go on to be seized by William the Conqueror in 1066 at the Battle of Hastings.
