“The saddest thing about any man is that he be ignorant, and the most exciting thing is that he knows.” Alfred the Great’s life had been one of great success for the Anglo-Saxon people. In the face of overwhelming odds, he united the Anglo-Saxons into one nation and beat back those who sought to end Anglo-Saxon England. His reign paved the way for the future unified Kingdom of England. Alfred’s grandson, Athelstan, cemented his legacy by finishing off the Viking threat and forming the Kingdom of England.
