The Last Kingdom Plot
Uhtred is the son of an English King. After losing his father in a war, he becomes the slave of Count Ragnar and is sent to a region inhabited by Pagans. Uhtred spends his childhood in that area. As a result of an attack, Count Ragnar is killed. Uhtred then returns to England. Upon the death of his father, his uncle, the new owner of the throne, dreams of killing the heir to the throne, Uhtred. Rumors arise that Count Ragnar was killed by Uhtred. On top of this gossip, neither the pagans nor the English help Uhtred. While trying to seek help, he stumbles upon the Kingdom of Wessex. Alfred, whom he met here, wants to save England from the pagan invasion. His biggest dream is to gather the country that survived the pagan invasion under one roof. Uhtred, on the other hand, does not know whether to choose the pagans or the English and is caught in a dilemma.
