What Will Happen In ‘The Last Kingdom’ Season 5?
Netflix released the official description of this upcoming finale, and here’s what’s going to happen.
Years after the fact since the events of the previous season, King Edward is still pushing through with his plans to combine the Saxon Kingdoms in order to [fulfill] his late father’s desire.
Although a long-standing peace exists between Danes and Saxons, it is in jeopardy. Not only was a fresh Danish invasion on the horizon, but so was a Saxon uprising.
Uhtred has been tasked with guarding Edward’s illegitimate son, Aethelstan, the future King of England. The deceitful Lord Aethelhelm, on the other hand, wishes for his grandson Aelfweard, Edward’s other son, to reign.
On his desire to attain his destiny, we accompany Uhtred as he encounters his greatest foes and endures immeasurable grief.
Meanwhile, Edward walks a delicate line between a peacekeeper and authoritarian as he struggles to bring the two sides together.
Uhtred realizes, in an unexpected turn of events, that the mission to reconcile England may be related to his own individual destiny.
The Last Kingdom Season 5 Exclusive Glimpse
Something has changed.
You’re missing out on the real excitement if you haven’t seen the trailer for the upcoming season. The show started modestly and steadily improved season by season.
Historical Background Of ‘The Last Kingdom’
The reoccurring themes of Alfred the Great’s and his heirs’ reigns are extensively documented, and a number of Uhtreds reigned from Bamburgh Castle, most prominently Uhtred the Bold more than a century later.
The ‘Danes’ came from a variety of locations in and around Denmark, including Southern Sweden and Norway.
Historians think that the Danish invasions of Northumbria came from Denmark’s Jutland, as recounted in Cornwell’s works, as well as some Danish islands and East Denmark (southern Sweden).
