  • Notes 
    • Ealdorman of Northumbria; lord of Bamburgh. "He was the most important Anglo-Saxon in Northumbria during the early tenth century, a time of renewed viking activity, and the last representative of an independent Anglo-Saxon royal family in the north. His father, Eadulf, is styled king of the north Saxons by the tenth-century record embedded in the Irish annals of Ulster, while the contemporary Historia de sancto Cuthberto describes him as princeps. Ealdred, like his father before him, was prominent in efforts to unite Northumbria with the other English-ruled regions; the Historia de sancto Cuthberto claims that he was as beloved by Edward the Elder as his father had been by Alfred the Great."
