        Edward the Confessor Frank Barlow Read in a dilapidated old used Hardback weighing in at pages with applicable maps, appendix, biblio, etc. Edward stands as a unique and interesting King that would, in a way, be the crossroads for the transformation of England. Edward was the son of Aethelred 'the unready' and Emma of Normandy (relevant later) united England under the House of /5(14). Edward the Confessor, also known as Saint Edward the Confessor, was one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England. He ruled from to Though many regarded him as an ineffectual monarch who was overshadowed by the nobles, he is known for preserving the unity of the kingdom and dignity of the crown throughout his reign.

Edward the Confessor was the first Anglo-Saxon and the only king of England to be canonised, but he was part of a tradition of (uncanonised) English royal saints, such as Eadburh of Winchester, a daughter of Edward the Elder, Edith of Wilton, a daughter of Edgar the Peaceful, and King Edward the Martyr.

      Few kings have attracted more legends than Edward the Confessor; and no king of England — not even Alfred — is associated with so much that is bogus. After his death in popular religion and the efforts of a notorious forger, Osbert of Clare, created the ecclesiastical legend with which he is generally identified — the life of Saint. Edward the Confessor, known by this name for his extreme piety, was canonised in by Pope Alexander III. He became one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings of England, reigning for an impressive twenty four years from until The last king of the House of Wessex was born in Oxfordshire at.
