Getting cross on Twitter because some people are saying that Alfred the Great was the first king of England.

(He was the king of Wessex. His grandson Aethelstan was the 1st king of England.)


@bright_helpings @GwenfarsGarden amusing that neither of you were born in England or even the UK.

@bright_helpings exactly!

You could say that Alfred had an idea of England, but it wasn't until his grandson that this was realised.
