Summary

Filled with drama and action, here is the story of the ninth-century life and times of Alfred--warrior, conqueror, lawmaker, scholar, and the only king whom England has ever called ''The Great.'' Based on up-to-date information on ninth-century history, geography, philosophy, literature, and social life, it vividly presents exciting views of Alfred in every stage of his long career and leaves the reader with a sharply-etched picture of the world of the Middle Ages.
