Strasserism Hammer and Sword

Gonna push it back to the 850s and the invasion that was repelled IOTL by Aethelwulf of Wessex. (851)

The Point of Divergence of the Nordica universe is that Bagsecg's arrival to East Anglia, where the Great Heathen Army was camping, is welcomed warmly by their warlord Ivar the Boneless.

In OTL, Ivar decided to test the strength of Wessex, to the west of East Anglia. In ATL, however, Ivar decides to seize Northumbria after the failure of the local puppet ruler, Ecgberht,  to pay the proper amount of Danesgeld.

The Invasion of Northumbria, which was caused over merely a few dozen gold coins, would result in a drastic shift in how the Vikings treated Britain, and the kingdoms located there.
