Summary
"Medieval historian Levi Roach suggests that the king has been wrongly maligned all along. Drawing on extensive research, Roach argues that Æthelred was driven by pious concerns about sin, society and the anticipated apocalypse, and that his strategies, in this light, were to honour God and find redemption. Chronologically charting Æthelred's life, illuminating his place in England and Europe at the start of the first millennium, this book is a ... more humanised, accessible and nuanced portrayal of the monarch than has ever before been available."--Jacket
