Edgar the Peaceful

Edgar, known as the Peaceful or the Peaceable, was King of England from 959 until his death. He was the younger son of Edmund I and Ælfgifu of Shaftesbury, came to the throne as a teenager, following the death of his older brother Eadwig; as king, Edgar further consolidated the political unity achieved by his predecessors, with his reign being noted for its relative stability. His most trusted advisor was Dunstan, whom he made Archbishop of Canterbury; the pinnacle of Edgar's reign was his coronation at Bath in 973, organised by Dunstan and forms the basis for the current coronation ceremony. After his death he was succeeded by his son Edward. Edgar was the son of Edmund Ælfgifu of Shaftesbury. Upon the death of King Edmund in 946, Edgar's uncle, ruled until 955. Eadred was succeeded by his nephew, Edmund's eldest son. Eadwig was not a popular king, his reign was marked by conflict with nobles and the Church St Dunstan and Archbishop Oda. In 957, the thanes of Mercia and Northumbria changed their allegiance to Edgar.

A conclave of nobles declared Edgar as king of the territory north of the Thames. Edgar became King of England upon Eadwig's death in October 959, aged 16. One of Edgar's first actions was to recall Dunstan from exile and have him made Bishop of Worcester and Abbot of Glastonbury Abbey, subsequently Bishop of London and Archbishop of Canterbury. Dunstan remained Edgar's advisor throughout his reign. While Edgar may not have been a peaceable man, his reign was peaceful; the Kingdom of England was well established, Edgar consolidated the political unity achieved by his predecessors. By the end of his reign, England was sufficiently unified in that it was unlikely to regress back to a state of division among rival kingships, as it had to an extent under the reign of Eadred. William Blackstone mentions. According to George Molyneaux, Edgar's reign, "far more than the reigns of either Alfred or Æthelstan, was the most pivotal phase in the development of the institutional structures that were fundamental to royal rule in the eleventh-century kingdom".

Indeed, an early eleventh century king Cnut the Great states in a letter to his subjects that"it is my will that all the nation and lay, shall steadfastly observe Edgar's laws, which all men have chosen and sworn at Oxford". The Monastic Reform Movement that introduced the Benedictine Rule to England's monastic communities peaked during the era of Dunstan, Æthelwold, Oswald. In 963, Edgar killed Earl Æthelwald, his rival in love, near present-day Longparish, Hampshire; the event was commemorated by the Dead Man's Plack, erected in 1825. In 1875, Edward Augustus Freeman debunked the story as a "tissue of romance" in his book, Historic Essays. Edgar was crowned at Bath and along with his wife Ælfthryth was anointed, setting a precedent for a coronation of a queen in England itself. Edgar's coronation did not happen until 973, in an imperial ceremony planned not as the initiation, but as the culmination of his reign; this service, devised by Dunstan himself and celebrated with a poem in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, forms the basis of the present-day British coronation ceremony.

The symbolic coronation was an important step. Six kings in Britain, including the King of Scots and the King of Strathclyde, pledged their faith that they would be the king's liege-men on sea and land. Chroniclers made the kings into eight, all plying the oars of Edgar's state barge on the River Dee; such embellishments may not be factual, what happened is unclear. Edgar died on 8 July 975 at Hampshire, he was buried at Glastonbury Abbey. He left two sons, his successor Edward, his illegitimate son by Æthelflæd, daughter of ealdorman Ordmaer, Æthelred, the younger, the child of his wife Ælfthryth. Edgar had a illegitimate daughter by Wulfthryth, who became abbess of Wilton, she was joined there by Edith of Wilton, who lived there as a nun until her death. Both women were regarded as saints.
