Entitled: King Alfred as Law-Maker before the Witan

The Witan, or Assembly of the Wise, consisted of the leading thanes and clergy, meeting three times a year. In its constitution it resembled the present House of Lords, and it enjoyed supreme power, there being no appeal to its decisions. King Alfred is represented in the illustration submitting his laws to that assembly, an event described by Alfred himself in the following terms: “I Alfred, king of the West Saxons, showed them to all my witan, and they said that they approved of them all, and would observe them.”
