Artist's Description

King Alfred the Great of England’s statue looms out of thick morning fog in his ancient capital, Winchester.
King Alfred (or Ælfrēd) (c. 849 – October 26, c. 899) of Wessex is the only King to be given the title of “The Great”. This statue of him stands in his capital, Winchester. The statue itself is by Hamo Thornycroft, and is dated 1900.
King Alfred successfully defended his Kingdom, which was to become England after his death, against the Danish Vikings, and championed education, and the rule of Law.
