In the eleventh century, Cnute, the Viking king of Engla-lond
and Scandinavia, sails with his son, Harald, and his shield brothers to Rome.
Thrown off course by a storm, they follow the route up the Rhine. When Harald
stays to assist Selia, a beautiful Frisian woman, his path turns perilous.
Newfound enemies, retainers of Robert the Devil, Duke of Normandy, pursue them.
Harald, Selia, and their companions fail to rendezvous with King Cnute, and are
forced to travel cross-country on horseback. If Duke Robert's plan to
assassinate Cnute succeeds, an invasion of Engla-lond will follow. Can Harald
and Selia reach Rome in time to warn the King?
