|Edith of Wessex Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
Later ecclesiastical writers claimed that this was either because Edward took a vow of celibacy, or because he refused to consummate the marriage because of his antipathy to Edith' s family, the Godwins. However, in the view of Edward' s biographer, Frank Barlow, "The theory that Edward' s childlessness was due to deliberate abstention from sexual relations lacks authority, plausibility and diagnostic value. "Edith was the daughter of Godwin, Earl of Wessex, one of the most powerful men in England at the time of King Edward' s rule. Her mother Gytha Thorkelsdottir was sister of Ulf Jarl, and by tradition descended from saga hero Styrbjoern Starke and king Harold I of Denmark.
|Cwichelm of Wessex Книга по Требованию Frederic P. M. |
Cwichelm is first mentioned in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for 614: "This year Cynegils and Cwichelm fought at Beandun), and slew two thousand and forty-six of the Welsh. " Bede records that the attempted assassination of King Edwin of Deira, c. 626, was ordered by the West Saxon King Cwichelm, and does not mention Cynegils. In 628, Cynegils and Cwichelm fought King Penda at Cirencester. The Chronicle could be expected to report a victory, but does not, so it is likely that Penda was the victor. The last mention of Cwichelm is for 636, when the Chronicle records: "This year King Cwichelm was baptized at Dorchester, and died the same year. " Cynegils was also baptised at this time, by Bishop Birinus, with Oswald of Bernicia was his godfather. The final entry in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle concerning Cwichelm, in 648, states: "This year Cenwalh gave his relation Cuthred three thousand hides of land by Ashdown. Cwichelm (died circa 636) was an Anglo-Saxon king of the Gewisse, a people in the upper Thames area who later created the kingdom of Wessex. He is usually counted among the Kings of Wessex.
