Beskrivning: Vad representerar denna produkt?

This remarkable ring serves as a tangible connection to the 9th century, replicating an artifact believed to have belonged to Princess Æthelswith. Beyond her portrayal in popular media as the wife of King Alfred in "The Last Kingdom," Æthelswith's true historical significance lies in her role as Alfred's sister, who married King Burgred of Mercia. This alliance was pivotal in consolidating resistance against Viking invaders, representing a unity that fortified the realms of Mercia and Wessex.

The ring's signet, depicting the Agnus Dei or "Lamb of God," is a profound symbol of peace and sacrifice, resonating with the themes of faith and protection during tumultuous times. Crafted from bronze, this replica embodies the spirit of endurance and the rich tapestry of Anglo-Saxon heritage, as seen in the original gold and enamel ring displayed at the British Museum in London.

Handmade by skilled craftsmen, this piece not only honors the legacy of Princess Æthelswith but also the artistic and cultural expressions of the Anglo-Saxon period, inviting wearers to carry a piece of history with them.
