I definitely agree with you that Uhtræd looks to be the very thing of a warrior-king. Let us hope he ends more like Edward I than Richard I or Henry V, however (at least in longevity.)I don't know. Despite his uncertainty, I feel Uhtræd has the makings of a great warrior-king. Obviously, that is not everything, but history tends to look at those more favorably if they are conquering or defeating their rivals in battle. (See Richard I or even, to a degree, Edward I) I can easily see him dealing with unruly vassals and then using that as a springboard to expand within the Isles thus creating a fine legacy for himself.
Also, thanks to your mystery on who the Bold Prince is, I'm left looking at a line about Beorhtmaer being described as such and wondering "IS THAT A SUBTLE HINT?". So well done.
As for the hint...hmmm. I don't plan on letting that question go anytime soon so look for more subtle hints in the days to come.
To all - the next update follows after a typo pass.
