Danelaw refers to the eastern and northern regions of the English kingdom in which Danish law was thought to prevail, as opposed to Mercian law to the west and West Saxon law to the south. The term was coined in the eleventh century, but the idea of a geographical area distinct from those controlled by the English originates with the Viking settlements of the ninth century and the treaty between Alfred and Guthrum.
