Description

Edgar is the youngest son of King Edmund of Wessex. Although he became known as Edgar 'the Peaceable' he ruled England with an iron rod. His strict government was backed up by a naval force which deterred invasion by the Vikings. This work tells the story of a Anglo-Saxon monarch who became the first King of a united England in 959.show more
