Alfred the Great

No burnt cakes here. I started drawing kings and queens about a year ago, from a reference book. My motive was not any love for royalty or the institution, but simply to try to learn the names and dates, which I never bothered to do before, although I did ‘A’ level history long ago. Inability to answer quiz questions was a much stronger motivation than exams.

I’d done all the ones from William the Conqueror onwards, but none of the earlier ones.

This was a fairly quick copy of a photograph of his statue in Wantage.
