Notes


Edward, the Elder, King of England: Edward, was born 875. He married Eadgifu 919. Edward, died 924 at 49 years of age.


"The 'Kingdom of the Anglo-Saxons' The 'kingdom of the Anglo-Saxons' was a distinctively Alfredian political order, reflecting the circumstances which came to prevail during the 880s, and expressing in its title the amalgamation of 'English' Mercia with the 'Saxon' territories of Wessex, Sussex, and Kent. The 'kingdom of the Anglo-Saxons' endured throughout the reign of Edward the Elder and into the opening years of the reign of Athelstan. It was then itself overtaken by further developments, and was superseded by the 'kingdom of the English' in 927. For further discussion, see F90, pp. 34-9 (with map), and entry in A100. See also F50, pp. 38-41 and 227-8; F10, pp. 1147-9; F42, pp. 62-3; G12; Richards (M187), pp. 47-50. "


THE REIGN OF KING EDWARD THE ELDER (899-924): "Following the death of King Alfred, on 26 October 899, the distinctively Alfredian polity established in the early 880s, comprising Wessex, its south-eastern extensions, and 'English' Mercia, and symbolised by the royal style 'king of the Anglo-Saxons', passed intact to Edward the Elder, securely based at Winchester. Acting in close co-operation with Athelred and Athelflad, rulers of the Mercians (under Edward's authority), Edward extended his rule over the southern Danelaw; and in 920 he gained the submission of the Scots, the Northumbrians, and the 'Welsh' of Strathclyde.



For general accounts of the reign of Edward the Elder, see Stenton (A1), pp. 319-39, and Stafford (A8), pp. 31-3. For his charters, see Keynes (F10), pp. 1141-7, and G35; see also EHD no. 100. For his law-codes, see Attenborough (B366). For his coinage, see Blunt et al. (M127). For the division of the West Saxon bishoprics (c. 910), see EHD no. 229. For the integration of Wesex, Mercia, and the southern Danelaw, see Fisher (A5), pp. 245-9."

Edward the Elder (Redirected from Edward I the Elder of England)


Edward the Elder
Rank: 7th
Ruled: October 26, 899-July 17, 924
Predecessor: Alfred the Great
Date of Birth: 871
Place of Birth: Wessex, England
Wives: Egwina, Elfleda, and Edgiva
Buried: Winchester Cathedral
Date of Death: July 17, 924
Parents: Alfred and Ealhswith


King Edward the Elder (871?-924) was the son of King Alfred the Great. He became King of Wessex on his father's death in 899, and exceeded Alfred's military achievements, restoring the Danelaw to Saxon rule and reigning in Mercia from 918, after the death of his sister, Ethelfleda. He spent his early reign fighting his cousin Aethelwald, son of Ethelred I. He had about eighteen children from his three marriages, and may have had an illegitimate child, too. He died in about 924, and was buried at Winchester. This portrait is imaginary and was drawn together with portraits of other Anglo-Saxons monarchs by an unknown artist on the 18th century.


His daughter, Eadgifu married King Charles III of France. Her son became King Louis IV of France.
