Summary:
Alfred was England's first king. His rule spanned troubled times: his shores were under constant threat from Viking marauders and his life was imperilled by conspiracies in his own court. But he was an extrordinary character - a soldier, scholar and statesman like no other in English history - and out of adversity he forged a new type of nation.
