Comments King Alfred's Daughter: The Lady of the Mercians

  1. This is a good book for anyone interested in Lady Aethelflaed, the close of the reign of Alfred the Great, the reign of Edward, and the setting of the stage for the reign of Aethelstan It is well researched and presented and recommended with one caveat relating to the publisher and not the writing itself It is a very good treatment of the late 9th and early 10th century Anglo Saxon England A very good book for those interested in the history of Mercia and Wesex The novel starts out a tiny bit wo [...]


  2. Wonderful book At first I did find the style of writing a little irritating, but the further I went the she seemed to find her voice To fit the whole of Aethelflaedss life into such a short book, obviously meant that she would have to skip quite a bit of detailing, but she focussed on some of the important key battles and events that hapenned in her lifeAll in short, loved it


  3. I enjoyed the book butTHe focus of the book is very much around Aethelflaed and the relationships within the royal family and close associates She clearly was a driving force but it rarely came over through the book She did have one serious conversation with a Viking leader when we had a sudden insight into the real character, but then it died away and we went back to the book s norm.During her time, crucial campaigns were fought with the Danes that seemed to hardly get a mention I don t think b [...]


  4. A good, and historically accurate account of the life of Ethelfleada of Mercia, daughter of Alfred the Great If you want something that doesn t engage in romantic or imaginative flights of fancy about Fleda running off with Danes, or making shacking up with a Welsh lover, and places her actions in the context of the time, this is a great choice.
