Made king at fifteen, he was by all accounts a pious and just ruler. In his spare time he hunkered down with a copy of the Bible and learnt the entire book of Psalms, no mean feat for a busy teenage lad.
It couldn’t last. Invading Danes finished him off with arrows until he resembled a porcupine. Or should we say hedgehog.
For those who need to know, we can confirm that three of his venerable teeth remain in storage at Bury Saint Edmunds in England.
