Alfred the Great   (c.871-c.901)

Althelney was made famous in history when King Alfred the Great of Wessex and his band of followers chose to make a stronghold here at Easter 878 after the Danes attacked his stronghold at Chippenham in January and forced the king to flee with only a small band before overrunning the kingdom. It is at Athelney the the king and his followers planned the recapture of Wessex from the Danes.
