Arrow Elf the Great


Queen consort of Wessex..

Film poster..
Quote:
When the Vikings invade England, Alfred is about to take his priesthood vows.. However, his brother, King Æthelred of Wessex , summons him to his aid and Alfred leaves for battle, where he appears to be a great tactician.. Æthelred dies shortly after Alfred marries the Mercian princess Aelhswith.. Torn between following intellect or passion, Alfred at first refuses to succeed Æthelred and consummate his marriage, but is forced to accept kingship after the Danes attack again..Realising the weak position of Wessex, Alfred goes into negotiations with Guthrum , leader of the Vikings.. Aelhswith on the other hand agrees to become Guthrum's hostage and they start to develop feelings for each other..


The Gunfight Begins (1957) HD ..

Alfred the Great (849 – 26 October 899) (Old English: Ælfrēd, Ælfrǣd, "elf counsel" or "wise elf") was King of Wessex from 871 to 899..Alfred was born in the village of Wanating, now Wantage, Oxfordshire..He was the youngest son of King Æthelwulf of Wessex, by his first wife, Osburh..In 853, at the age of four, Alfred is said to have been sent to Rome where, according to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.. he was confirmed by Pope Leo IV who "anointed him as king".. Victorian writers later interpreted this as an anticipatory coronation in preparation for his eventual succession to the throne of Wessex..A letter of Leo IV shows that Alfred was made a "consul"; a misinterpretation of this investiture, deliberate or accidental, could explain later confusion..It may also be based on Alfred's later having accompanied his father on a pilgrimage to Rome, where he spent some time at the court of Charles the Bald, King of the Franks, around 854–855..Statues of Alfred in Winchester and Wantage portray him as a great warrior.. Evidence suggests he was not physically strong, and though not lacking in courage, he was noted more for his intellect than as a warlike character..

26 October 1881 – The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral took place at Tombstone, Arizona, at about 3:00 p.m.. Generally regarded as the most famous gunfight in the history of the American Old West, the gunfight, believed to have lasted only about thirty seconds, was fought between the outlaw cowboys Billy Clanton, Tom McLaury and his brother Frank McLaury, and the opposing lawmen Virgil Earp and his brothers Morgan and Wyatt Earp, aided by Doc Holliday acting as a temporary deputy of Virgil..Cowboys Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne ran from the fight unharmed, but Ike’s brother Billy Clanton was killed, along with both McLaurys.. Lawmen Holliday and Morgan and Virgil Earp were wounded.. Only Wyatt Earp came through the fight unharmed..The fight has come to represent a time in American history when the frontier was open range for outlaws opposed by law enforcement that was spread thin over vast territories, leaving some areas unprotected..The shootout actually took place in a narrow lot on the side of C. S. Fly's Photographic Studio on Fremont Street..The gunfight was not the end of the conflict...

The flag of Hampshire..
Quote:
Hampshire's county town is Winchester, a historic city that was once the capital of the ancient kingdom of Wessex and of England until the Norman conquest of England.. The port cities of Southampton and Portsmouth were split off as independent unitary authorities in 1997, although they are still included in Hampshire for ceremonial purposes.. Fareham, Gosport and Havant have grown into a conurbation that stretches along the coast between the two main cities.. The 3 cities are all university cities..Hampshire lies outside the green belt area of restricted development around London, but has good railway and motorway links to the capital..Due to Hampshire's long association with pigs and boars, natives of the county have been known as Hampshire hogs since the 18th century.. Hampshire has literary connections, being the birthplace of authors including Jane Austen, and Charles Dickens, and the residence of others, such as Charles Kingsley..The county's news is covered on BBC TV by BBC South Today from its studios in Southampton Airport, with an accompanying main line railway station, is an international airport situated in the Borough of Eastleigh, close to Swaythling in the city of Southampton..The M27 motorway serves a bypass for the major conurbations and as a link to other settlements on the south coast..Apart from a shared police force there are now no formal administrative links between the Isle of Wight and Hampshire, though many organisations still combine Hampshire and the Isle of Wight..Hampshire formerly had several canals, but most of these have been abandoned and their routes built over..


Ladydown Aqueduct over Wessex Main Line..Julia Bradbury..

The Kennet and Avon Canal is a waterway in southern England with an overall length of 87 miles (140 km), made up of two lengths of navigable river linked by a canal..In 1788 a "Western Canal" was proposed to improve trade and communication links to towns such as Hungerford, Marlborough, Calne, Chippenham and Melksham..In July 1793 Rennie suggested further alterations to the route, including the construction of a tunnel in the Savernake Forest..The canal opened in 1810 after 16 years of construction..During the Second World War a large number of concrete pillboxes were built as part of the GHQ Line - Blue to defend against an expected German invasion; many of these are still visible along the banks of the canal..The last through passage was made in 1951 by nb Queen..The canal then crosses over the river and the Wessex Main Line railway at the Dundas Aqueduct, past Conkwell Wood, before recrossing the river and railway at the Avoncliff Aqueduct..3 Swineford Lock-Schweinfurt ('swine ford') is a city in the Lower Franconia region of Bavaria in Germany on the right bank of the navigable Main River, which is spanned by several bridges here, 27 km northeast of Würzburg..84 A338 Hungerford Town Bridge to Hungerford station..In all, the waterway incorporates 105 locks..The canal today is a heritage tourism destination...

https://forum.davidicke.com/showpost...&postcount=284A few miles out of Hungerford the country became less populous with only a solitary farmhouse here and there, peaceful and placid in the evening light..Then these, too, were left behind and they entered a long stretch of darkening woodlands, the northern fringe of Savernake Forest..We planned a huge network of tunnels under the forest floor, and our first order of business every morning was to decide on a new pathway for the day..'Hello!

Arrow Lady of the MercIans


Tombstone Gloucester City Museum..

The Five Boroughs and the English Midlands 10th century..
Quote:
Æthelflæd, Lady of the Mercians, ruled Mercia from 911 to her dath on 12 June 918.. She was the eldest daughter of Alfred the Great, king of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex, and his queen, Ealhswith..Æthelflæd was born at the height of the Viking invasions of England.. Her father married her to Æthelred, Lord of the Mercians..After his death in 911, she ruled; the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle referred to her as the Myrcna hlæfdige, "Lady of the Mercians"..


Queen Aethelflaed Saxon Educational Film ..

Æthelflæd was already married to Æthelred, then ealdorman of Mercia.. Æthelred and Æthelflæd are recorded as having had one daughter, Ælfwynn. Æthelstan, the son of Edward the Elder and the grandson of Alfred, was brought up in their court..At some point after their marriage Werferth, the Bishop of Worcester, fortified the town, in return for which Æthelred and Æthelflæd allowed him to retain the rents and other profits which had belonged to the bishop's markets there rather than be taxed on them...It is believed that ..Æthelflæd established garrisons in Hereford and Gloucester before 914 and repaired the old walls of Chester in 907.. In 910 she built her first fortress at the unidentified 'Bremesbyrig'; Æthelred had been mortally ill and died in this period..On her husband's darth in 911 after the Battle of Tettenhall, she was recognised as the "Lady of the Mercians"..

Æthelflæd was a formidable military leader and tactician and ruled for 8 years..In 916 she led an expedition into Wales to avenge the murder of a Mercian abbot, and succeeded in capturing the wife of the king of Brycheiniog.. Edward the Elder issued coinage with novel reverses of extraordinary designs, and it is speculated that this series of coinage was for circulation in the part of Mercia under the rule of Edward and his sister, with the design of the coinage perhaps showing the influence of Æthelflæd..In 918, the people of the region around York promised to pledge their loyalty to Æthelflæd, probably in order to secure her support against Norse raiders from Ireland, but she died, less than two weeks before the city was able to pay homage to her..She was succeeded as Lady of the Mercians by her daughter, Ælfwynn, but six months later Edward deposed her and took Mercia under his personal control..According to the Parker Chronicle (Manuscript A of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle), which was strongly sympathetic to Edward, "all the people in the land of the Mercians who had been subject to Æthelflæd turned to him; and the kings among the Welsh, Hywel and Clydog and Idwal, and all the Welsh people sought to have him as their lord"...

Arrow Edward The Elderfleur


A Cavalcade Of Kings..
Quote:
Edward was the elder son born to Alfred the Great and his Mercian queen, Ealhswith.. Edward's birth cannot be dated with certainty.. His parents married in 868 and his elder sister Æthelflæd was born soon afterwards as she was herself married in 883.. Edward was probably born rather later, in the 870s, and probably between 874 and 877..The chronicle of Peter of Langtoft (died c.1308, and hence writing several centuries later) called him, "[v]ery strong and handsome, and of great intelligence"..The first appearance of Edward in the sources is in 892, in a charter granting land at North Newnton, near Pewsey in Wiltshire, to ealdorman Æthelhelm, where he is called filius regis, the king's son..


Portrait miniature from a 13th century genealogical scroll depicting Edward..

When Alfred died, Edward's cousin Æthelwold, the son of King Æthelred of Wessex, rose up to claim the throne and began Æthelwold's Revolt.. He seized Wimborne, in Dorset, where his father was buried, and Christchurch (then in Hampshire, now in Dorset).. Edward marched to Badbury and offered battle, but Æthelwold refused to leave Wimborne.. Just when it looked as if Edward was going to attack Wimborne, Æthelwold left in the night, and joined the Danes in Northumbria, where he was announced as King. In the meantime, Edward was crowned on 8 June 900, possibly at Kingston upon Thames..In 901, Æthelwold came with a fleet to Essex, and encouraged the Danes in East Anglia to rise up. In the following year he attacked English Mercia and northern Wessex.. Edward retaliated by ravaging East Anglia, but when he retreated south the men of Kent disobeyed the order to retire, and were intercepted by the Danish army..The two sides met at the Battle of the Holme on 13 December 902.. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, the Danes "kept the place of slaughter", but they suffered heavy losses, including Æthelwold and a King Eohric, possibly of the East Anglian Danes..Relations with the North proved problematic for Edward for several more years..

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle mentions that he made peace with the East Anglian and Northumbrian Danes "of necessity".. There is also a mention of the regaining of Chester in 907, which may be an indication that the city was taken in battle..Edward extended the control of Wessex over the whole of Mercia, East Anglia and Essex, conquering lands occupied by the Danes and bringing the residual autonomy of Mercia to an end in 918, after the da'at of his sister, Æthelflæd..Æthelflæd's daughter, Ælfwynn, was named as her successor, but Edward deposed her, bringing Mercia under his direct control..He had already annexed the cities of London and Oxford and the surrounding lands of Oxfordshire and Middlesex in 911..Edward reorganized the Church in Wessex, creating new bishoprics at Ramsbury and Sonning, Wells and Crediton.. Despite this, there is little indication that Edward was particularly religious.. In fact, the Pope delivered a reprimand to him to pay more attention to his religious responsibilities..Edward probably divided the West Midlands into shires between 919 and 924, ignoring traditional regional and tribal boundaries.. His rearrangement aroused Mercian opposition, and he died leading an army against a rebellion by the garrison at Chester in alliance with the Welsh, on 17 July 924 at Farndon-Upon-Dee and was buried in the New Minster in Winchester, Hampshire...

Lightbulb ÆlfwinTextus


Roffensis - Opening folio of the code..
Quote:
Edwin (died 933) was the younger son of King Edward the Elder and Ælfflæd, his second wife.. He drowned at sea in circumstances which are unclear..Edward the Elder died in 924, leaving 5 sons by 3 marriages.. Of these, Edmund and Eadred were infants and thus excluded from the succession.. Edward's careful work of expansion was undone when the Mercians chose Edward's oldest son Æthelstan—probably raised in Mercia at the court of Æthelflæd—to be their king while the West Saxons picked Ælfweard, elder son of Edward's second wife Ælfflæd, who was perhaps Edward's own choice as successor..The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle simply states that Ælfweard died soon after his father's death on 17 July 924 and that they were buried together at Winchester.. Manuscript D of the Chronicle specifies that he outlived his father by only 16 days..However, a list of West-Saxon kings in the 12th-century Textus Roffensis mentions him as his father's successor, with a reign of four weeks..


The Vikngs The Seer & Siggy (The Valkyries) ..

For in the year of the Incarnate Word 933, when the same King Edwin, driven by some disturbance in his kingdom, embarked on a ship, wishing to cross to this side of the sea, a storm arose and the ship was wrecked and he was overwhelmed in the midst of the waves.. And when his body was washed ashore, Count Adelolf, since he was his kinsman, received it with honour and bore it to the monastery of Saint Bertin [at Saint-Omer] for burial”..

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states that Edwin drowned at sea in 933..The Francian Annales Bertiniani compiled by Folcuin provide more detail: Later writers such as William of Malmesbury and Simeon of Durham rewrote Edwin's death.. Sir Frank Stenton saw their reports as suggesting that "a rebellion against Athelstan may have been organised within the royal house itself".. Simeon's version baldly states that "King Æthelstan commanded that his brother Edwin be drowned at sea"..William's account is much longer and associates Edwin's death with an earlier plot to blind Æthelstan and replace him with Edwin. In this version, Æthelstan is convinced by jealous courtiers to have Edwin sent to sea in a leaky boat, without oars, without food, and without water.. Despairing, Edwin throws himself into the sea and drowns ..The Annales Bertiniani say that the monks of Saint Bertin were granted a monastery at Bath by "King Æthelstan" in 944—in fact King Edmund, Æthelstan having died in 939—in gratitude for their care of Edwin's remains...

Arrow King of the Anglo-Saxons


Uneasy lies the head that wears..

On Golden Pond..She's the one that can sea...
Quote:
Æthelstan or Athelstan (Old English: meaning "noble stone"; c. 894 – 27 October 939) was King of the Anglo-Saxons from 924 to 927 and King of the English from 927 to 939.. He was the son of King Edward the Elder and his first wife, Ecgwynn. Modern historians regard him as the first King of England and one of the greatest Anglo-Saxon kings..He never married, and was succeeded by his half-brother, Edmund..Æthelstan centralised government; he increased control over the production of charters and summoned leading figures from distant areas to his councils.. These meetings were also attended by rulers from outside his territory, especially Welsh kings, who thus acknowledged his overlordship..Æthelstan was one of the most pious West Saxon kings, and was known for collecting relics and founding churches.. His household was the centre of English learning during his reign, and it laid the foundation for the Benedictine monastic reform later in the century..No other West Saxon king played as important a role in European politics as Æthelstan, and he arranged the marriages of several of his sisters to continental rulers..


King of the English Æthelstan presenting a book to St Cuthbert.

According to William of Malmesbury, Æthelstan was thirty years old when he came to the throne in 924, which would mean that he was born in about 894.. He was the oldest son of Edward the Elder and also the tallest..He was Edward's only son by his first consort, Ecgwynn..Medieval chroniclers gave varying descriptions of her rank: one described her as an ignoble consort of inferior birth, while others described her birth as noble..Barbara Yorke & Sarah Foot argue that allegations that Æthelstan was illegitimate were a product of the dispute over the succession, and that there is no reason to doubt that she was Edward's legitimate wife.. She may have been related to St Dunstan.. Æthelflæd and Æthelred, and it is likely that the young prince gained his military training in the Mercian campaigns to conquer the Danelaw..Even after Ælfweard's death there seems to have been opposition to Æthelstan in Wessex, particularly in Winchester, where Ælfweard was buried.. At first Æthelstan behaved as a Mercian king..A charter relating to land in Derbyshire, which appears to have been issued at a time in 925 when his authority had not yet been recognised outside Mercia, was witnessed only by Mercian bishops..Æthelstan (Athelstan; died 1056) was a medieval Bishop of Hereford..I imagine he makes God feel less than immaculate..


Vikings: Athelstan Saves Ragnar in Battle Flóki & Torstein..

The coronation of Æthelstan took place on 4 September 925 at Kingston upon Thames, due to its symbolic location on the border between Wessex and Mercia..He was crowned by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Athelm, who probably designed or organised a new ordo in which the king wore a crown for the first time instead of a helmet..The new ordo was influenced by West Frankish liturgy and in turn became one of the sources of the medieval French ordo..Edward the Elder had conquered the Danish territories in Mercia and East Anglia with the assistance of Æthelflæd and her husband, but when Edward died the Danish king Sihtric still ruled the Viking Kingdom of York (formerly the southern Northumbrian kingdom of Deira).. In January 926, Æthelstan arranged for one of his sisters to marry Sihtric..The two kings agreed not to invade each other's territories or to support each other's enemies.. The following year Sihtric died, and Æthelstan seized the chance to invade.. Guthfrith, a cousin of Sihtric, led a fleet from Dublin to try to take the throne, but Æthelstan easily prevailed.. He captured York and received the submission of the Danish people..Whereas Æthelstan was the first English king to achieve lordship over northern Britain, he inherited his authority over the Welsh kings from his father and aunt..According to William of Malmesbury, after the meeting at Eamont Æthelstan summoned the Welsh kings to Hereford, where he imposed a heavy annual tribute and fixed the border between England and Wales in the Hereford area at the River Wye, after the Hereford meeting Æthelstan went on to expel the Cornish from Exeter, fortify its walls, and fix the Cornish boundary at the River Tamar..Æthelstan emphasised his control by establishing a new Cornish see and appointing its first ,bishop but Cornwall kept its own culture and language..Æthelstan became the first king of all the Anglo-Saxon peoples, and in effect overlord of Britain..Church and state maintained close relations in the Anglo-Saxon period, politically and Socially .. Churchmen attended royal feasts as well as meetings of the Royal Council...

Lightbulb Eadgyth


Detail from a Gothic statue in Magdeburg Cathedral..
Quote:
Edith was born to the reigning English king Edward the Elder by his second wife, Ælfflæd, and hence was a granddaughter of King Alfred the Great..In 919 her sister Eadgifu married the West Frankish king Charles the Simple.. Nothing is known of Edith until at the request of the East Frankish king Henry the Fowler, who wished to stake a claim to equality and to seal the alliance between the two Saxon kingdoms, her half-brother King Æthelstan sent his sisters Edith and Edgiva to Germany..Henry's eldest son and heir to the throne Otto was instructed to choose whichever one pleased him best..


Mmm Betty - Let me down Easy ..

Bertha of Swabia, by Albert Anker, 1888..

Like her brother, Æthelstan, Edith was devoted to the cult of their ancestor Saint Oswald of Northumbria and was instrumental in introducing this cult into Germany after her marriage to the emperor.. Her lasting influence may have caused certain monasteries & churches in the Duchy of Saxony to be dedicated to this saint..Eadgyth's death at a relatively young age, in her early thirties, was unexpected..Otto apparently mourned the loss of a loved spouse he greatly esteemed.. He secondly married Adelaide of Italy in 951, she was the daughter of Rudolf II of Burgundy, a member of the Elder House of Welf, and Bertha of Swabia..

Eadgifu or Edgifu, also known as Edgiva or Ogive (Old English: Eadgifu; 902 – after 955) was a daughter of Edward the Elder, King of Wessex and England, and his second wife Ælfflæd..She was born in Wessex..Eadgifu was 1 of 3 West Saxon sisters married to Continental kings: the others were Eadgyth, who married Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor and Eadhild, who married Hugh the Great..Eadgifu became the second wife of King Charles III of France, whom she married in 919 after the death of his first wife, Frederonne.. Eadgifu was mother to Louis IV of France..She retired to a convent in Laon.. In 951, Heribert the Old, Count of Omois, abducted and married her, to the great anger of her son..


Edmund in the late 13th century..

Edmund came to the throne as the son of Edward the Elder, grandson of Alfred the Great, great-grandson of Æthelwulf of Wessex, great-great grandson of Egbert of Wessex and great-great-great grandson of Ealhmund of Kent.. Shortly after his proclamation as king, he had to face several military threats..King Olaf III Guthfrithson conquered Northumbria and invaded the Midlands; when Olaf died in 942, Edmund reconquered the Midlands.. In 943, Edmund became the god-father of King Olaf of York.. In 944, Edmund was successful in reconquering Northumbria.. In the same year, his ally Olaf of York lost his throne and left for Dublin in Ireland.. Olaf became the king of Dublin as Amlaíb Cuarán and continued to be allied to his God-Father..In 945, Edmund conquered Strathclyde but ceded the territory to King Malcolm I of Scotland in exchange for a treaty of mutual military support..Edmund thus established a policy of safe borders and peaceful relationships with Scotland.. During his reign, the revival of monasteries in England began..On 26 May 946, Edmund was murdered by Leofa, an exiled thief, while attending St Augustine's Day mass in (South Gloucestershire) Pucklechurch .. A recent article re-examines Edmund's death and dismisses the later chronicle accounts as fiction.. It suggests the king was the victim of a political assassination..


The Stranglers -Let Me Down Easy..

Hugh the Black was Duke of Burgundy from 923 until his death in 952.. He was a Bosonid through his father, who was the younger brother of Boso of Provence..It is unknown whether Hugh married.. He probably died without living offspring, as he was succeeded as Duke of Burgundy by Gilbert of Chalon, who held the title of Duke of Burgundy jure uxoris, his wife Ermengard being the daughter of Richard of Autun, and sister of Hugh..Doe may refer to: An adult female in some animal species such as deer and goat..Even Mocata doesn't realise the importance of the Moon in this thing..I am his favourite medium-so attuned to his vibrations that he would have the very greatest difficulty in replacing me...

Lightbulb Earldom


Extent of Northumbria in 800..
Quote:
Northumbria was formed by Æthelfrith in central Great Britain in Anglo-Saxon times.. At the beginning of the 7th century, the two kingdoms of Bernicia and Deira were unified.. (In the 12th century writings of Henry of Huntingdon, the kingdom was defined as one of the Heptarchy of Anglo-Saxon kingdoms).. At its height, the kingdom extended at least from just south of the Humber to the River Mersey and to the Forth (roughly, Sheffield to Runcorn to Edinburgh) and there is some evidence that it may have been much greater..The later (and smaller) earldom came about when the southern part of Northumbria (ex-Deira) was lost to the Danelaw..Much of this land was "debated" between England and Scotland, but the Earldom of Northumbria was eventually recognised as part of England by the Anglo-Scottish Treaty of York in 1237...Northumbria was originally formed from the union of two independent kingdoms.. Bernicia covered lands north of the Tees, while Deira corresponded roughly to modern-day Yorkshire.. Bernicia and Deira were first united by Aethelfrith, a king of Bernicia who conquered Deira around the year 604.. He was defeated and killed around the year 616 in battle at the River Idle by Raedwald of East Anglia, who installed Edwin, the son of Ælla, a former king of Deira, as king..

Oisín..

Earl Percy Hunting in Chevy Chase..

Edwin, who accepted Christianity in 627, soon grew to become the most powerful king in England: he was recognised as Bretwalda and conquered the Isle of Man and Gwynedd in northern Wales..He was, however, himself defeated by an alliance of the exiled king of Gwynedd, Cadwallon ap Cadfan, and Penda, king of Mercia, at the Battle of Hatfield Chase in 633..After Edwin's death, Northumbria was split between Bernicia, where Eanfrith, a son of Aethelfrith, took power, and Deira, where a cousin of Edwin, Osric, became king..Cumbria tended to remain a country frontier with the Britons.. Both of these rulers were killed during the year that followed, as Cadwallon continued his devastating invasion of Northumbria.. After the murder of Eanfrith, his brother, Oswald, backed by warriors sent by Domnall Brecc of Dál Riata, defeated and killed Cadwallon at the Battle of Heavenfield in 634..Oswald expanded his kingdom considerably..King Oswald re-introduced Christianity to the Kingdom by appointing St. Aidan, an Irish monk from the Scottish island of Iona to convert his people..This led to the introduction of the practices of Celtic Christianity..A monastery was established on Lindisfarne..War with Mercia continued, however.. In 642, Oswald was killed by the Mercians under Penda at the Battle of Maserfield..In the year 664, the Synod of Whitby was held to discuss the controversy regarding the timing of the Easter festival..


King Aelle learns of the Vikings..

In 867 Northumbria became the northern kingdom of the Danelaw, after its conquest by the brothers Halfdan Ragnarsson and Ivar the Boneless who installed an Englishman, Ecgberht, as a puppet king.. Despite the pillaging of the kingdom, Viking rule brought lucrative trade to Northumbria, especially at their capital York..The kingdom passed between English, Norse and Norse-Gaelic kings until it was finally absorbed by King Eadred after the death of the last independent Northumbrian monarch, Erik Bloodaxe, in 954..After the English regained the territory of the former kingdom, Scots invasions reduced Northumbria to an earldom stretching from the Humber to the Tweed.. Northumbria was disputed between the emerging kingdoms of England and Scotland.. The land north of the Tweed was finally ceded to Scotland in 1018 as a result of the battle of Carham.. Yorkshire and Northumberland were first mentioned as separate in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 1065...

Lightbulb Wang Saga


Östergötland Coat of arms..

The Wulfing navy on the move..
Quote:
The Wulfings, Wylfings or Ylfings (the "wolf clan") was a powerful clan in Beowulf, Widsith and in the Norse sagas.. While the poet of Beowulf does not locate the Wulfings geographically, Scandinavian sources define the Ylfings (the Old Norse form of the name) as the ruling clan of the Eastern Geats is one of the traditional provinces of Sweden (landskap in Swedish) in the south of Sweden.. It borders Småland, Västergötland, Närke, Södermanland and the Baltic Sea..Historically, the Kingdom of Denmark collected Sound Dues from ships at the border between the ocean and the land-locked Baltic Sea..The narrowest part of Little Belt is the "Middelfart Sund" near Middelfart..Since the Viking age, the Scandinavians have referred to the Baltic Sea as Austmarr ("Eastern Lake").. "Eastern Sea", which implies that the Vikings correctly regarded it as an inlet of the sea..


Wagner - Das Rheingold + ("Any Colour you like!")..

In Old Norse sources, the clan figure prominently in the Heimskringla and in Sögubrot, where Hjörvard and his son Hjörmund belong to it.. It is also mentioned in the Lay of Hyndla and in Skáldskaparmál where Eiríkr the Wise was one of its members. However, its most famous member was Helgi Hundingsbane who had two poems of his own, in the Poetic Edda, and whose story is also retold in the Völsunga saga is a legendary saga, a late 13th century Icelandic prose rendition of the origin and decline of the Völsung clan (including the story of Sigurd and Brynhild and destruction of the Burgundians)..The German Nibelungen – with the corresponding Old Norse form Niflung – is the name in Germanic and Norse mythology of the royal family or lineage of the Burgundians who settled in the early 5th century at Worms..The vast wealth of the Burgundians is often referred to as the Niblung or Niflung hoard..The historical core of the saga is the defeat of the Burgundians by Flavius Aëtius with the aid of Hunnic mercenaries near Worms ca. AD 436.. Other possible influences are the feud between the 6th century Merovingian queens Brunhilda and Fredegunde, as well as the marriage of Attila with the Burgundian princess Ildikó in AD 453, which took place the day before his death..The earliest probable surviving mention of the name is in the Latin poem Waltharius..From 1560, Östergötland was represented with two separate coat-of-arms seals until 1884, when the current one was granted..The coat of arms is represented with a ducal coronet.. Blazon: "Gules a Griffin with Dragon Wings, Tail and Tongue rampant Or armed, beaked, langued and membered Azure between four Argent"..The traditions of Östergötland date back into the Viking age, the undocumented Iron Age, and earlier, when this region had its own laws and kings.. It is said that the famous Viking warrior Beowulf may likely have been from what is now the Östergötland region.. The region kept its own laws, the Östgötalagen, into the Middle Ages..There have been several Dukes and Duchesses of Östergötland..The roundabout dogs started appearing in Linköping, Östergötland, Sweden, similar dogs appeared on some of the roundabouts in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire..


The Battle of the 5 Armies - "Smaug Attacks"..

In the Icelandic Volsunga Saga (late 13th century), Fáfnir is a dwarf with a powerful arm and fearless soul.. He guards his father's haus of glittering gold and flashing gems.. He is the strongest and most aggressive of the 3 brothers..Regin recounts to Sigurd how Odin, Loki and Hœnir were traveling when they came across Ótr, who had the likeness of an otter during the day..Loki killed the otter with a stone and the 3 Æsir skinned their catch..The gods came to Hreidmar’s dwelling that evening and were pleased to show off the otter's skin..Hreidmar and his remaining 2 sons then seized the gods and held them captive while Loki was made to gather the ransom, which was to stuff the otter’s skin with gold and cover its outside with red gold.. Loki fulfilled the task by gathering the cursed gold of Andvari as well as the ring, Andvaranaut, both of which were told to Loki as items that would bring about the death of whoever possessed them.. Fáfnir then killed Hreidmar to get all the gold for himself.. He became very ill-natured and greedy, so he went out into the wilderness to keep his fortune, eventually turning into a serpent or dragon to guard his treasure..Fáfnir also breathed poison into the land around him so no one would go near him and his treasure, wreaking terror in the of the people..The valknut (Old Norse valr,"slain warriors" and knut, "knot") is a symbol consisting of 3 interlocked triangles, and appears on various Germanic objects..A number of theories have been proposed for its significance..The name valknut is an unattested modern invention used to describe the symbol, and was not used contemporaneously with the symbol...

Lightbulb Eadred


Michael Wood - "In Search of the Dark Ages...Erik Bloodaxe..
Quote:
Eadred was a son of Edward the Elder by his third marriage, to Eadgifu, daughter of Sigehelm, ealdorman of Kent.. He succeeded his elder brother King Edmund I (r. 939-946), who was stabbed to death at Pucklechurch (Gloucestershire), on St Augustine's Day, 26 May 946.. The same year, on 16 August, Eadred was consecrated by Archbishop Oda of Canterbury at Kingston upon Thames (Surrey, now Greater London), where he appears to have received the submission of Welsh rulers and northern earls..


Eadred in the early 14th century..

What dream is that? quoth Odin,
I thought to rise ere day-break
To make Valhall ready
For troops of slain;
I roused the champions,
Bade them rise swiftly
Benches to strew,
To wash beer-flagons;
The Valkyries to pour wine,
As a prince were coming..

Óláf Sihtricson, otherwise known as Amlaíb Cuarán ('Sandal'), had been king of Northumbria in the early 940s when he became Edmund's godson and client king, but he was later driven out.. He then succeeded his cousin as King of Dublin, but after a heavy defeat in battle in 947, he was once again forced to try his luck elsewhere..Shortly thereafter, Olaf was back in business, having regained the kingdom of York - The other player in the game was Eric 'Bloodaxe', previously king of Norway (r. 930-4).. After a number of successful operations elsewhere, he came to Northumbria and appears at some point to have set himself up as king.. King Eadred responded harshly to the northern defectors by launching a destructive raid on Northumbria, which notably included burning the Ripon monastery founded by St. Wilfrid..Eadred managed to check his rival by promising the latter's supporters even greater havoc if they did not desert the foreign prince..Towards the end of his life, Eadred suffered from a digestive malady which would prove fatal.. 'Author B', the biographer and former apprentice of St Dunstan, described with vivid memory..Eadred died at the age of 32 on 23 November (St. Clement's Day), 955, at Frome (Somerset), and was buried in the Old Minster at Winchester...

Arrow Ripon off Britan

News on 2..
Quote:

With Angela Rippon | 04/10/1979 /BBC2..

Ripon is a cathedral city in the Borough of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England.. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is located at the confluence of two tributaries of the River Ure, the Laver and Skell..The city is noted for its main feature, Ripon Cathedral which is architecturally significant, as well as the Ripon Racecourse and other features such as its market..The city itself is just over 1,300 years old..The city was originally known as Inhrypum and was founded by Saint Wilfrid during the time of the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria, a period during which it enjoyed prominence in terms of religious importance in Great Britain..It was for a period under Viking control, and later suffered under the Normans..


Arms of Ripon City Council..

The earliest settlers were stonemasons, glaziers and plasterers that Wilfrid brought over to help construct the Ripon monastery, from Lyon in Francia & Rome which was then under Byzantine rule..The years following the death of Wilfrid are obscure in Ripon's history.. After the invasion of the Great Heathen Army of Norse Vikings in Northumbria, the Danelaw was established and the Kingdom of Jórvík was founded in the Yorkshire area.. In 937 Athelstan, then King of England, granted the privilege of sanctuary to Ripon, for a mile around the church..One of his successors was less well-disposed: after the Northumbrians rebelled against English rule in 948, King Edred had the buildings at Ripon burned..Prosperity was restored by the end of the 10th century, as the body of Saint Cuthbert was moved to Ripon for a while, due to the threat of Danish raids - YORKSHIRE Ripper Peter Sutcliffe has moaned about missing TV drama Vikings after his switch to a high-security jail..Sutcliffe, who murdered 13 women and tried to kill se7en others, has watched 3 series of the gory drama Vikings at Broadmoor..


Angela Rippon was born in Plymouth, Devon, into a working-class family..Her father, John, was a Royal Marine; she first saw him in 1947 when he returned from World War II.. Rippon's Scottish mother, Edna, worked at a fine china company called Lawley's and was also a seamstress..She attended a girls' grammar school in Plymouth..I kept my brain active by working on programmes like Antiques Roadshow, Top Gear and In the Country..She wrote a book Mark Phillips: The Man and His Horses, about the Princess Royal's then husband..Rippon co-presented the BBC's coverage of the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer..In 2000, Rippon was appointed Chair of English National Ballet..She has co-presented the BBC consumer show Rip Off Britain with Gloria Hunniford & Julia Somerville Rippon joined the BBC again, as a co-presenter on the BBC One show Holiday Hit Squad, alongside Crowley & Helen (Helter Skelter) Skelton - PC Desmond Kellam was bludgeoned to death as he attempted to make an arrest..Police are looking for a heavy AXE like instrument - They also want to talk to anyone from the Capricorn CLUB...

Boniface destroying Thor's oak..

Wigbert was an Englishman of noble birth in Wessex around 675, older than Boniface, who embraced the monastic state..At times an anchorite, and hermit he was known for his missionary work, miracles and prophecies...It has been supposed that Wigbert was a monk of Glastonbury..When Boniface felled Thor's Oak near Fritzlar in northern Hesse in 723, he built a wooden chapel from the oak's wood and in 724 established a Benedictine monastery in Fritzlar - Caill Tomair (Old Irish 'Thor's Grove') was a sacred grove dedicated to the North Germanic god Thor..Located near the Norse-Gaelic city of Dublin, the grove was destroyed by forces led by Brian Boru early in the year 1000 CE..Sacred groves and sacred trees were venerated throughout the history of the Germanic peoples and were targeted for destruction by Christian missionaries during the Christianization of the Germanic peoples..Wigbert worked mainly in Ireland...
