Can the King of the Scots and the Dublin Norse triumph against a united England?



King Athelstan of the English has been successful in uniting the many kingdoms of Britain against one enemy, the Viking raiders.



But men who are kings don’t wish to be ruled.


Constantin, King of the Scots, rebelled against the Imperium and was forcibly brought to bend the knee to Athelstan and England at Cirencester.


His son Ildulb seeks bloody vengeance from Athelstan following the battle at Cait and the death of his son.


Olaf Gothfrithson, king of the Dublin Norse, having asserted his power following his father's death has his sights set on reclaiming Jorvik.



Can the united might of the Scots and the violence of the Dublin Norse, descendants of the infamous Viking raiders, bring King Athelstan and his vision of the united Saxon English to her knees?


An epic story of kingsmanship that will result in the pivotal, bloody Battle of Brunanburh, where only one side can be victorious.
