Sigtryggr in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Sigtryggr is a Dane and cousin to Cnut (Magnus Bruun) as well as the late Ubba’s (Rune Temte) great-nephew according to Sigtryggr’s Fandom page. He leads a group of Danes that were all forced to leave Ireland. He becomes a threat to the Saxons when he takes Winchester in Wessex along with Brida (Emily Cox). However, he comes to an agreement with the Saxons, taking Stiorra (Ruby Hartley), Uhtred’s (Alexander Dreymon) daughter, with him as a stipulation for him leaving Winchester and being given possession of Eoferwic as well. It’s still unclear what kind of role he will play in season 5.
