Athelstan was acknowledged by the Welsh princes and at a meeting at Hereford they agreed to pay taxes to him in the form of gold, silver, hawks, hounds and oxen. He founded the see of St Germans in Cornwall. Athelstan made laws, particularly to control the widespread thieving that was then prevalent. Athelstan had a good physique and golden hair, he was compassionate, intelligent and christian-like and was the first English Monarch who effectively ruled the whole Kingdom. He has an extensive biographical entry in the Dictionary of National Biography.3
