Ethelred II the Unready England King

SOURCE: Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996.

NOTE: AEthelred II, 968-1016, king of England (978-1016), lost his
kingdom to Danish conquerors. His nickname, "the Unready," is derived
from the Old English unrede, meaning that he lacked advice. Beginning
his reign under suspicion of murdering his half-brother, King Edward the
Martyr, AEthelred proved a weak ruler. In 980 the Danes renewed their
raids on England after a 25-year truce. Unable to mount effective
resistance, AEthelred began payment (991) of the Danegeld, a form of
tribute, to buy off the raiders. In 1013, however, the Danes under SWEYN
overran the entire country, and AEthelred fled to Normandy. Although he
returned in 1014, King CANUTE completed the Danish conquest of England
in 1016, shortly after AEthelred's death. (Grolier Encycl.)
