Ealhswith was the wife of King Aelle of Northumbria and the mother of Judith, Ecgberht and Bjaela.


Season 1

Ealhswith accompanies her husband, King Aelle and her son, Ecgberht in welcoming Aelle's brother, Aethelwulf to their hall. Aethelwulf is to lead Aelle's army against the Northmen, who have invaded their lands in search of plunder. The two brothers are pleased to see each other and Aethelwulf jests about paying poets to sing his praises. When Aethelwulf notices that Ealswith does not laugh at his joke, he asks her if she has no time for laughter, to which she replies that she only has time for fear.
