Aethelred might have relinquished his kingdom to Swein, the conqueror, but with Swein dead, the men have no interest in supporting an untried youth whose name resounds with the murder of one of England’s greatest bishop’s, a youth known only for his savagery and joy of battle, a true norse man who utilizes his weapons without thought.But Cnut wants a kingdom and he will do anything to gain one.As England is ravaged by a civil war between the sons of two former kings, Athelstan and Edmund, sons of King Aethelred, and Cnut, son of Swein, the men must make personal decisions in the heat of battle as they strive to reclaim their birthrights whilst doing all the can to stay alive.Cnut: the Conqueror, is an Earls of Mercia side story to mark the millennial anniversary of Cnut’s accession to the English kingdom in 1016.
