England is mentioned several times during the series, including by Saxon characters such as Athelstan, Ecbert and Aella. England however did not exist as a concept until the reign of Ecbert's son Alfred the Great, and not as an entity until the reign of Alfred's son Edward the Elder. Until this time the area that is now England consisted of the Saxon kingdoms of Wessex (the south), East Anglia (the east), Mercia (the midlands), Northumbria (the North) and the (celtic) British Kingdom of Kernow (Cornwall). Until the coming of the Vikings which necessitated alliances these kingdoms were more often than not hostile to each other. See more
