Harald: This is all about the kingship. He takes a wife, produces an heir, and then in his eyes, Kattegat is his forever. Hvitserk: A good plan, except for one thing. Harald: What one thing? Margrethe: He can't produce children. He is boneless.
Alfred: There are important people here who do not want me to grant land to those who in the past have attacked and raided us. Ubbe: So why would we fight for you when everything you say is just a lie? Alfred: I am not lying. I am being more honest with you than you have any right to expect. You have thrown yourself upon my mercy, so do not presume anymore upon my charity. When I can, I will grant you that land.
