To vincentmen

Do you want an "analysis" of the sentence or do you just want to know how the expression "disguised as" can be substituted for other words?
If you just want to know how "disguised as" can be substituted, then you can write the sentence as follows:-

"Alfred the Great acted as his own spy, visiting Danish camps DRESSED AS/PRETENDING TO BE a minstrel."
