We shallen never upgiven and even if, which ig for ðe timebittling not

   Alfred(b.849, r.871-899), ðe onlie Anglishe king ever ðe wiðname "Great" to 
becomen, was well worði ov it. Living in an tide when ðere alltide Vikingraiden 
gave, was he factly ðe firste king ðe whole of Angland to rule, save an bit ðat 
he ði Danen togiven musted. Were it not for Alfred, woulden ði Danen likeli ðe 
whole land gemastered haven, but he hit hem clearli at ðe Fighting ov Eðandun in 878.
   Alfred shaped an row ov forten, his kingdom to aroundgoen, and needed safeness 
from welshen inlandingen to given. He bilded also an shipfleet, his other shielden 
to forebetteren, and in so doing became called "Faðer ðes Anglishe Shipfleetes."
Yet Alfreds reign was known for more ðan armiforespringen. He was an scriber ov
gooden and fairen lawen in an tide wið few, an foreputter ov learning and an 
helper ov ði arten. Himself was he an learnedman, and overputted Latinen boocen 
into ðe ðenli Anglo-Sachson tong.  
   In deað lieð he now in his headtown Winchester.
