BIOGRAPHY Edmund was born about 921, the son of Edward I 'the Elder', king of England, and Eadgifu. He continued the re-conquest of England from the Vikings; in 942 he won back Mercia and in 944 Northumbria. A year later he ravaged all Strathclyde and ceded it to Malcolm, king of Scots, on the condition that he would be his ally both by sea and land. It is said that Edmund had ill-treated Dunstan, the future saint, who was preparing to go into exile. The story goes that King Edmund was hunting a stag, which darted up through the woods to the top of Cheddar gorge. Seeing no way of escape it leapt over the cliff, followed by the baying hounds. The king saw his danger, but his horse was beyond his power to control. The wrong done to Dunstan flashed through his mind and he vowed to make amends if his life was spared. On the very edge the horse stopped short and turned aside. When the king returned home he sent for Dunstan and asked to accompany him to Glastonbury. There he sat Dunstan in the abbot's seat and bade him to rule the house he loved. With his first wife Aelgifu he had two sons, Edwy and Edgar, who would be kings of England. Only Edgar is recorded as having progeny. Aelgifu died about 944, and Edmund married Aethelflaed of Damerham, but had no children by her. The murder of Edmund was described by the Anglo-Saxon chronicler, William of Malmesbury, but was later embellished. A robber named Leofa, whom the king had banished for his crimes, returning totally unexpected after six years' absence, was sitting among the guests at Pucklechurch in Gloucestershire on 26 May 946. While the others were carousing, Leofa was spotted by the king alone, who leapt from the table, caught the robber by the hair and dragged him to the floor. However Leofa drew a dagger and plunged it into the breast of the king as he lay upon him. The robber was then torn limb from limb by the king's attendants who rushed in. Edmund was succeeded as king by his younger brother Edred.
