Shownotes

This is the eighteenth episode in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series drawing on the legendary life of Alfred the Great. In this particular episode he brings a woman into the series for the first time —Alfred’s first born, Æthelflæd. The beautiful young Æthelflæd becomes an incredible picture of love, grace, and self-sacrificing care as she is called on to play a very special role as a royal player in the Anglo-Saxon culture. Æthelflæd becomes the “peace-weaver” between two nations at at a time when peace between them was essential to overcoming the Viking onslaught.
