Amleth (Latinized Amlethus, Old Icelandic Aml籀簸i) is a character in medieval Scandinavian legend, who is the direct inspiration for William Shakespeare to create the character of Prince Hamlet in the Tragedy of Hamlet - Prince of Denmark.

The Northman is set in the early tenth century in Iceland, King Aurvandill (Ethan Hawke) is murdered by his brother Fj繹lnir (Claes Bang), who usurps the throne and forces Queen Gudr繳n (Nicole Kidman) to remarry with him.

Thus, after Aquaman 2018, Nicole Kidman once again plays the role of an Empress/Queen going through complicated marriages.

King Aurvandill's young son Amleth flees his uncle's pursuit, and many years later he returned to avenge his uncle and free his mother.

Swedish Alexander Skarsg疇rd, born 1976, 1m94 tall, is widely known for his roles as Iceman Brad Colbert in Generation Kill, Tarzan / John Clayton in The Legend of Tarzan, Prime Minister James Steward in Long Shot, and more recently as Nathan Lind in the blockbuster Godzilla vs. Kong.
