Please Don't Compare Me With My Father

dmund II Ironside , the son of Aethelred the Unready. Finally the people had a king to save them. He was so unlike his father. Even before he became king he raised an army and planned campaigns that freed London. For over 3 years, and during the last two years of Aethelred's reign and against his fathers wishes he was the sole hope of England. He was a brilliant soldier and tactician who was in the mould of Alfred and Athelstan. Declared an outcast by his father, he died at the age of 22 after only a few short months on the throne. The peoples hopes must have been raised and then dashed horribly.
