Leader of a poor but rising nation. Teaching myself to read so I can promote literacy in my country. Adopted a Viking king.
Old Minster, Winchester
I hit rock bottom seven years ago when my last surviving brother was killed in battle by the Vikings, leaving me the unprepared 21-year-old king of a war-ravaged backwater country, on the brink of total invasion. But in my darkest hour, when I and a few followers were hiding out in a marsh (and after I had just burned some cakes I was supposed to be watching), God strengthened us to win a definitive victory against the Vikings, and I baptized their king into the Christian faith. My big project right now is to build a nation on ruins, using God’s Word as the foundation for everything. I live in Wessex with my lovely wife Eahlswith and our three children.
