King Edwy
Born ?
Reigned 955 - 959

The Unpopular Saxon

dwy succeeded his uncle Edred. Not popular, he was at odds with St Dunstan and exiled him. He managed to alienate the Mercians and Northumbrians leading to the withdrawal of their support for Edgar. This left him in power only south of the river Thames. So between 957 and 959 there were effectively two kings of England.
