A historical show set in medieval times. The series is set in Hungary near Budapest. It guides us through history, humanity, and religion. All human emotions are portrayed equally, like a canvas and its colors. In this show, there is no right or evil, and it is just humanity. The series looks beautiful; the locations used are utter, tremendous; the cinematography is fantastic.
The year is 872, and many the separate kingdoms of what we now know as England have fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. Against the turbulent backdrop, lives our hero, Uhtred. Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested.

What is he? A Saxon or a Dane? This is an incredible adventure back in the time of the late 1900s, to the days of the Saxons and the Danes and King Alfred’s vision of a united England, all seen through the eyes of Uhtred Ragnarsson, a Saxon who was raised by Danes. It is an epic piece, full of grand hero’s and vengeful villains, kings and earthlings, curses and cures, beautiful princesses’ and bloody sorceress’ ritual battles and secret betrayals, all under the watchful eyes of gods. The acting is excellent, the writing superb, and the plot twists and turns unpredictably.
