Vortimer, the courageous son of Vortigern, stands as a beacon of defiance in an era shadowed by the looming Saxon menace. Born into the complex tapestry of political intrigue, Vortimer is driven by an unwavering commitment to protect Britain from the encroaching threat. Fueled by a deep-seated fear of witnessing his homeland fall to foreign invaders, he rises against his own father’s misguided alliances.

In the intricate dance of power, Vortimer finds himself grappling with the wily Hengest, a master manipulator orchestrating the downfall of Britain. Despite Vortigern’s questionable decisions, Vortimer emerges as a stalwart leader, determined to push back the Saxons in a series of epic battles. His actions are not just driven by personal ambition but by a profound desire to safeguard the land he calls home.

Vortimer’s vision extends beyond the immediate conflict; he harbors a poignant wish to be buried where the Saxons first landed, a symbolic gesture aimed at warding off future invasions. However, even in death, he faces betrayal from within, falling victim to poisoning by his stepmother Rowena, a Saxon agent embedded in his court. As Vortimer’s life becomes a tragic tale of fleeting triumph and ultimate sacrifice, the fate of Britain hangs in the balance, poised between resilience and vulnerability.
