When the Vikings arrived in England, they found a small town where monks lived. The Vikings raided and killed many of them. However Athelstan is spared -- because he can speak their language -- and is taken by Rangar back to Denmark.

What has happened to him since then?

    What is the point of asking what happened to him in S3? Have you watched it? Spoilers: vikings.wikia.com/wiki/Athelstan#Season_3

  • I only had time for the 3 major turning points with this character, but I can fill in some details, if desired, when I have some more time. (The show has top-notch fight choreography, art design and wardrobe, and expressive actors, so you're not missing all that much without sound:)

So much. So, so much.

He "goes native" for a while and adopts the pagan religion of the Vikings, having traveled with them to Upsala.

He hooks up with Judith and their progeny is the future King Alfred. King Ecbert declares the child holy and sends him on a pilgrimage to Rome.

He finally chooses Christianity and is murdered/martyred by Floki.

  • dude, maybe consider a spoiler for the last one? i know it's been a while, but like Usual Suspects and Sixth Sense, it is a major event that maybe people haven't seen yet May 31 '18 at 12:04
  • @NicholasAysen They might want to reconsider asking for the fate of a character then.

  • @DukeZhou I removed them, since you're not supposed to hide the entirety of the answer in invisibility. People who read the answers to this question want to know what happened to this guy.
