Edmond II, King of England2
     Edmund II 'Ironside', King of England was born between 988 and 993.1 He was the son of Æthelred II 'the Unready', King of England and Ælgifu (?).3 He married Ealdgyth (?) circa August 1015 at Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England.1 He died on 30 November 1016 at Oxford, Oxfordshire, England, murdered.4 He was buried at Glastonbury Abbey, Glastonbury, Somerset, England.4
     He succeeded to the title of King Edmund II of England on 23 April 1016.1 He was crowned King of England in April 1016 at St. Paul's Cathedral, The City, London, England.1 He fought in the Battle of Assandun on 18 October 1016, where he was defeated by Cnut.5 Due to King Ethelred having been so inept, Cnut was accepted as King by a large section of the country after Ethelred's death. Cnut ruled most of the country North of the Thames whilst Edmund was accepted in the South. Cnut laid siege to London and wished to control it with his fleet but his ships could not pass London Bridge, so he had a cutting made on the South side of the bridge and passed his ships around it. Edmund marched on London through the woods at Tottenham and a fierce battle ensued. Cnut withdrew and fought Edmund at Ashington (Assandun) in Essex but this time Edmund was beaten. Cnut was wise and knew that Edmund was popular so he met him on an island in the Severn near Deerhurst and it was agreed that Edmund should rule Wessex and Canute would rule the land North of the Thames, including London.6
