Æþelræd Unræd

Æþelræd Unræd

He's the worst king ever.

The Danes are at our doorstep.

Thorkell the Tall is going to invade any day.

And what does Æþelræd do?

He hassles us for tribute money to send to the Danes.

Enough already.

And what's the deal with the thegns?

What do twelve oathsworn thegns have to do with justice?

The guilty don't deserve time of high and mighty.

The thegns need to focus on crushing the Danes.

So does Æþelræd.
