R dwald is our Footsore Miniatures figure. The famous Sutton Hoo helmet that is widely believed to have belonged to the king proudly adorns our logo.
From around 616, R dwald was the most powerful of the English kings south of the River Humber. According to Bede he was the fourth ruler to hold imperium over other southern Anglo-Saxon kingdoms: he was referred to in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, written centuries after his death, as a bretwalda (an Old English term meaning 'Britain-ruler' or 'wide-ruler').
The pack contains one figure supplied unpainted and may need some assembly. The spear, shield and base are supplied.
