English | 2017 | Action & Adventure | 2.7 MB

England at the turn of the tenth century: a war-ridden land; a country where only the most resolute leaders will prevail, and foremost amongst these is Aethelflaed, the Lady of the Mercians.
Mercia: a once great Saxon kingdom brought to near ruin; half the realm taken by the Danes and the remainder enduring the constant threat of complete extinction. But Alfred, King of Wessex, cannot allow the birthplace of his wife to crumble. A military pact with Mercia’s ruler, Aethelred, and the giving in marriage to him of Alfred’s daughter, Aethelflaed, are the first steps to bolster Mercia and inspire both realms to fight back.
As the Danish raids increase in number and severity, Aethelflaed learns the harsh realities of dealing with the aggressive and brutal Danelaw and is transformed from teenage bride and young mother to councillor, then to joint ruler, and finally to Lady of the Mercians; compelled to conduct the intrigue, diplomacy, and warfare that rulership demands. With the passing of the fight into her hands the struggle intensifies, and Aethelflaed, supported by her redoubtable daughter, takes the war to the Dane. The stage is set for the turning of the tide of history, but it is just as final triumph appears to be within her grasp that the greatest threat emerges…
