Did Uhtred die at the end of The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die?

Uhtred’s vision of Valhalla seems to indicate that he is about to die, but an accompanying voiceover from Finan indicates that his fate was unknown in the annals. This allows fans to make their own judgment regarding Uhtred’s fate.

Although it is likely that he is dead, Uhtred is still alive at the end of Cornwell’s novels, so it is not hard to believe that he has recovered from his injuries and rules in Bebbanburg as a vassal of King Aethelstan.
Explain the relationship of Engelmundr and Athelstan
One of the most important new characters introduced in The Last Kingdom: Seven Kings Must Die It is Ingilmundr, who is revealed to be carrying on a secret affair with Aethelstan. Their love appears to be genuine, but it is eventually revealed that Enghelmundr is an agent of Anlaf, sent to persuade Æthelstan to wage war with the other kings of Britain. Ingilmundr, who pretends to be a devout Christian in order to please himself with Aethelstan, uses faith to manipulate him.
Eventually Uhtred finds out and tells Aethelstan who at first refuses to believe him. However, the evidence becomes indisputable and Engelmander ends up being executed after the Battle of Brunanburh. Ingilmundr admits before his death that he was fond of Aethelstan, but their relationship was ultimately just a way for Ingilmundr to manipulate him. There appears to have been some true love between them, but Ingilmundr ultimately chose his people over Aethelstan.
What does the prophecy of the seven kings really mean?

The seventh could be Uhtred, who many of his people believe is king, as indicated several times in the movie. Alternatively, if Uhtred survives his wounds from the Battle of Brunanburh, the seventh king may be another uncrowned son of a king: Aelfweard, son of Edward, who was murdered in cold blood by Aethelstan.
The other part of the prophecy that promises “The death of the woman you love“,” refers to Finnan, who lost his wife, Ingrith, when Anlaf’s men sacked Beppanburgh. And coincidentally, it was Ingrith who spoke the prophecy in the first place. It was widely assumed that it was Uhtred who lost a woman he loved, but Ingrith seems to know it would be the same based on the fact that her words were directed at Finan when speaking of the prophecy.
