A lot more people are "remembering" Aethelflaed these days and the period she lived in through the historical dramatization on Netflix called "The Last Kingdom". Its an excellent series even if its not 100% historically correct.

I binge-watched the fourth season of "The Last Kingdom" recently, in which Aethelflaed had a prominent role. I am very interested in the period and I like the show and despite the historical inaccuracies it is entertaining and well worth watching. I also like the fact that now when I read about the real Aethelflaed I have someone to visualise rather than just a stylised woodcut from an old manuscript. Same with Alfred and the other characters.

I agree that "The Last Kingdom" is not 100% accurate but I have to admit I really enjoyed it and also binge watched it.
