866AD - Saxons in Wessex win! But only for 4 short years...
Alfred the Great takes back Wessex swiftly at the battle of Edington
By now, the English have all their land back, but Vikings are still a threat, then Canute becomes king and their relationship shifts...
Alfred the Great and the Saxons in Wessex are able to hold off Vikings 4 years longer than the other English Kingdoms before it is taken in early 870AD.
The battle of Hastings quashes the last of Viking threats in England.
At the brutal Battle of Edington, later in 870AD Alfred the Great takes Wessex back off of the Vikings.
After centuries of Viking threats, they ease when England gets a Viking king in 1016. The Vikings wouldn't steal from themselves! Canute also becomes king of Denmark in 1019 and Norway in 1028.
As we move into another stage of history, Viking presence in England is no longer a threat.
No really... the end...
