Roman Britain. Opening title:- “This was a land where druid priests held sway over peoples minds and prophesied that one day a woman would wear armour and wield a sword against the Romans. A woman who would be called – The Viking Queen”. On his deathbed, old King Priam names his daughter, Salina, as his successor. She is a peace-loving young woman who tries to keep all sides – Druids and Romans alike – happy, at the same time falling in love with the Roman commander Justinian. But, circumstances soon dictate that she must take sides against the man she loves.
