A line from William Shakespeare's 1609 play Magnus I, one of his lesser known works, based on the life of King Magnus Sigurdson of England, the son of King Sigurd "Snake in the Eye" of Denmark and his wife, Blaeja of Northumbria, the daughter of King Ælla, who used his claim on Northumbria to conquer a vast swathe of northern England and Mercia. The line is spoken shortly after Magnus goes to war against his uncle Halfdan Whiteshirt and his own father King Sigurd, and the irony of the statement, given Magnus being originally from Denmark, is thick throughout the scene. In real life, Magnus is widely considered to be the first King of England. While the line is ficticious, as there are few surviving records from Magnus' reign, the real Magnus did declare himself to be a Northumbrian, and his dynasty was known as the House of Northumbria."The English people will never defeat the Dane unless they are united. One King, one God, one people. There will no longer be a Mercia or a Northumbria, only an England. And I, a Northumbrian, will be its King."
