Dead King Watch: Edred



On 23rd November 955, King Edred passed away, which makes this the 1051st anniversary of his death. Born in 923, he became King aged 23 and then ruled for about ten years before dying of an illness in his mid to late thirties. I know one can't judge anyone by their appearance, but I think an exception can be made for Kings and Queens. Just look at Edred. And then laugh.

It looks as if he was modeling for a tarot card in one of the decks with somewhat cruder artwork. He could be the King of Rods.
