The Last Kingdom: Is Uhtred of Bebbanburg real?

In the fifth season of The Last Kingdom, Uhtred continues his quest to regain his birthright. Here is the real castle upon which Bebbanburg is based in Uhtred.

The Last Kingdom: Is Uhtred of Bebbanburg real?

The Last Kingdom fans watched how Uhtred spent five seasons on the quest to take back Bebbanburg. The Last Kingdom from Netflix is an adaptation of The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, with the final and final season adaptation of books 9 and 10, The Warriors of the Storm and The Flame Bearer. Although season five saw Uhtred finally reclaim Bebbanburg, there are more stories to tell, as the last three books in the Cornwell saga have been adapted into a movie, Seven Kings Must Die, which will end the historical series.

In The Last Kingdom, Uhtred (Alexander Dreymon) becomes heir to Bebbanburg after his brother's murder but is captured by the Danes shortly thereafter. A favorite of the Danes, Uhtred was raised and embraced their ways and beliefs, but his oath to restore Bebbanburg led him to serve the Saxon King Alfred. Throughout the series' five seasons, Uhtred's loyalties between the Danes and the Saxons made his quest to become Lord of Bebbanburg all the more complicated; However, in Season 5 of The Last Kingdom, Uhtred succeeds after rescuing the Saxon army with the help of the Danes, thus poetically concluding the content of the serialized series as Uhtred continues to preserve both sides of his legacy.

With Uhtred finally reclaiming Bebbanburg, Seven Kings Must Die will likely explore more of Uhtred's historic home. Like so many of Cornwell's brilliantly written chains, Bebbanburg is based on a truly historic setting. As the series depicts, the real Bebbanburg Castle is located on the northeastern coast of England, in the modern state of Northumberland. However, while the latter kingdom refers to the coastal castle by its Saxon name, Beppanburg, the stronghold is now known as Bamburgh Castle.

The Last Kingdom: Is Uhtred of Bebbanburg real?

Overlooking the North Sea, Bamburgh Castle was known only by its Anglo-Saxon name, Bebbanburg, for a short time during the 7th century before it was renamed. Likewise, the Land of Uhtred in The Last Kingdom is also a nod to the times upon which the series is based, as the Kingdom of Northumbria was the Saxon name for a large area of ​​northern England that includes modern-day Northumberland. It's also true that the Danes settled there during the early 10th century when the fifth season of The Last Kingdom was set. In the coming years, chronicled in Cornwell's three remaining books, The Wolf's War, The Sword of Kings, and The Lord of War, the real Beppanburg - Bamburgh Castle - and the Kingdom of Northumbria will be drawn more and more to the quest for a united England, as will be shown in the upcoming The Last Kingdom movie, must That seven kings die.

While the foundational footage of Bebbanburg in The Last Kingdom was filmed using the real Bebbanburg, Bamburgh Castle, none of the historic castle interiors were used in the series. The castle's courtyard and all interior footage were filmed in sets built in Budapest along with dramatic scenes from Season 4 of The Last Kingdom, which show Uhtred and his men storming the castle's sea gate. Similarly, the upcoming The Last Kingdom movie, Seven Kings Must Die is currently being filmed in Hungary as well.
