King Ecbert (Linus Roache)

King Ecbert is the ruler of Wessex, the largest of the five kingdoms in England with big plans to make it even larger. Unlike King Aelle of Northumbria, Ecbert is a sophisticated visionary, well versed in court life. Ecbert has always anticipated that he must someday face the Vikings and is prepared with strategies as to how they can be used to his advantage.
