Edward the Elder, King of England2
     Eadweard I, King of Wessex was born circa 871 at Wantage, Dorset, England.3 He was the son of Ælfræd, King of Wessex and Eahlwið, Princess of Mercia. He married, firstly, Ecgwyn (?).3 He married, secondly, Ælflæd (?), daughter of Ethelhelm, Ealdorman and Elswitha (?), circa 901.4 He married, thirdly, Eadgifu (?), daughter of Sigehelm, Ealdorman of Kent, circa 920.5 He died on 17 July 924 at Farndon-on-Dee, England.6 He was also reported to have died on 7 July 924 at Farndon, Cheshire, England. He was buried at Winchester Cathedral, Winchester, Hampshire, England.6
      Eadweard I, King of Wessex also went by the nick-name of Edward 'the Elder' (?).1 He succeeded to the title of King Eadweard I of Wessex on 26 October 899.3 He succeeded to the title of King Eadweard I of Mercia on 26 October 899.3 He was crowned King of Wessex and Mercia on 31 May 900 at Kingston-upon-Thames, London, England.3
     Edward together with his sister Ethelfleda of Mercia, fought stoutly against the Danes. Ethelfleda built many forts notably at Chester, Hereford, Bridgenorth, Shrewsbury, Warwick, Gloucester and Tamworth. Known as The Lady of the Mercians, she died in 918 and Mercia was then united with Wessex. In 914, Edward secured the release of the Bishop of Llandaff (Cardiff) who had been captured by the Norsemen and following this, the princes of both North and South Wales pledged their perpetual allegiance to him. Edward doubled the size of the kingdom during his reign. It is now generally acknowledged that Edward died on the 7th July 924 but some historians give the date as 925.

     Eadræd, King of England was born between 923 and 925.1 He was the son of Eadweard I, King of Wessex and Eadgifu (?).2 He died on 23 November 955 at Frome, Somerset, England, after a long illness.3 He was buried at Winchester Cathedral, Winchester, Hampshire, England.3
     He succeeded to the title of King Eadræd of England on 26 May 946.1 He was crowned King of England on 16 August 946 at Kingston-upon-Thames, London, England.1
     The previous king, Edmund, had two sons but neither were old enough to succeed him at the time of his death. Instead the Kingdom passed to his brother Edred. In 947 Eric Bloodaxe came from Norway and led the resident Norsemen of Northumbria against Edred. Although first defeated, Eric returned to rule at York for two years. In 954 the Northumbrians expelled Eric, and Edred regained control of Northumbria after a final battle against Eric's forces at Stainemore near Edendale. Dunstan, the former Abbot of Glastonbury, was Edred's chief minister.
