The cathedral is dedicated to St Chad and Saint Mary..
Æthelred I (Old English: Æþelræd, sometimes rendered as Ethelred, "noble counsel"; c. 847 – 871) was King of Wessex from 865 to 871.. He was the fourth son of King Æthelwulf of Wessex.. He succeeded his brother, Æthelberht , as King of Wessex and Kent in 865..In the same year as Æthelred's succession as king, a great Viking army arrived in England, under the leadership of Halfdan Ragnarsson and Ivar the Boneless, within 5 years they had destroyed two of the principal English kingdoms, Northumbria and East Anglia.. In 868 Æthelred's brother-in-law, Burgred king of Mercia, appealed to him for help against the Vikings..In about 867, Æthelred effectively established a common currency between Wessex and Mercia by adopting the Mercian type of lunette penny, and coins minted exclusively at London and Canterbury then circulated in the two kingdoms..In 870 the Vikings turned their attention to Wessex, and on 4 January 871 at the Battle of Reading, Æthelred suffered a heavy defeat..Although he was able to re-form his army in time to win a victory at the Battle of Ashdown, he suffered further defeats on 22 January at Basing, and 22 March at Meretun..Æthelred died shortly after Easter (23 April) 871, and is buried at Wimborne Minster in Dorset..Æthelred's wife was probably called Wulfthryth..A charter of 868 refers to Wulfthryth regina (queen)..

The Viking form of execution known as the spreadeagle, or bloodeagle, whereby the victim was pinned face down on the ground and his ribs separated from his spine..The ribs were then forced outwards, forming a pair of wings.. Second World War was incredibly productive for the Illuminati agenda of global control..Do me a favour, will you?..Next time you have one of these things, keep it an all-British operation...
