Man Or Mouse ?
youngest son of Edward the Elder and brother of Edmund I. Famed for
expelling the Danish leader, Eric Bloodaxe from Northumbria in 947 and
from England in 954. In some manuscripts he is condemned as a sickly
weak king who was blamed for losing York in the first place. On the
other he was responsible for the expulsion of Eric Bloodaxe. Whatever
version you care to adopt, he secured Northumbria from the Danes.
