    I've seen this before. There were other kings on other thrones in Britain at the time. My own relation to royalty is the Norwegian/Swedish Uppsala dynasty of Ynglings/Scylfings, then Ivar and Halfdan in York. After that, well, I dunno!

    Who would you Consider the Greatest among them?

    In my humble opinion...William the Conquer...Canute the Great...and Edward Longshanks. Favorite being the Conquer.

    William the Conqueror (though I disagree with many things he did..he was brave), Henri I (because he was the only son who TRULY took after his father William in ruling) and..of course AElle first Bretwalda because he was the one who truly established the Anglo-Saxon in England

    Yep the Conqueror was Brave...but his Tatics for Conqueroring Unorthodox to say the least...He was Ruthless but the Times Demanded it.

    Yes Henry I was something...I think his name Beauclerk(Fine Scholar) Said something about his character that his brothers didn't have. He had to beat both of them to get The Anglo-Norman Throne.

    I have no idea who AElle first Bretwalda is...perhaps you can tell me.

    But Regarding Anglo Monarchs I think the Greatest was Alfred.

    They definetly did demand it. William had a VERY strange childhood, fleeing from one end of Normandy to another as a child..being wisked away with maternal relatives to fend off those who wanted the Duchy for themselves. He was definetly very untrusting..even of his sons! And concerning Robert and William Rufus..rightly so. Henri was definetly the best of the three.

    Yes, Henri was quite the fighter. Its funny how he ended up winning it all in the end I was routing for him the whole time! It is unfortunate much of the Anglo-Norman monarch line died out after the unfortunate incidents out at sea ..his daughter stupidly marrying an Angevin

    I have no idea who AElle first Bretwalda is...perhaps you can tell me.
    Well, I shall tell you "Ælle was king of the South Saxons from 477 to perhaps as late as 514, and was named Bretwalda by Bede, who adds that he was overlord of the Anglo-Saxons south of the Humber river." First..he was a the King of the Angles originally, then came to control the Saxons and Jutes too..hence the formation of the Anglo-Saxons! Small note, Bretwalda was the title the first landed Angles (AElle's Angles!) and Saxons chieftains strove for which meant to be "ruler of Britain (Bret)"

    For more online info read here :http://www.fact-index.com/a/ae/aelle_of_sussex.html

    I personally like reading about him, found a book on English history in the library that spoke of him, where I first learned of him as well..now only to remember the title

    Yes. William had to overcome many odds stacked against him. He was a Bastard son and his father died when he was still a boy leaving him to stake his claim amongst ambitious Nobles who had their own plans.

    Yes Henry's son died in the White ship incidient...but he had many "other' children... His daughter Matilda who succeeded him.


    yes thanks for the Info. Anglo-Saxons are great Chroniclers and I love reading their history.

    I personally like reading about him, found a book on English history in the library that spoke of him, where I first learned of him as well..now only to remember the title
    Library is a great place...some of my best friends are books

    One Question...you Live in America right? How could you be Pure Franco-Norman?

    His "other" children had no right to the throne Matilda, as far as I know was the only "legit" child alive..and again..marrying the Angevin..bad move as far as I'm concerned lol

    Library is a great place...some of my best friends are books
    *pets her precious book friends* yes..my BEST friends are definetly books! I would die without them!

    One Question...you Live in America right? How could you be Pure Franco-Norman?
    Nope, I live north 'o the border Québécois by origin who are for the most part from Normandy and as far as I can trace my family(which hasn't EXEEDINGLY difficult due to the heavy presence of "blueblood") back thats what the geneology tells me as well as last name origins so..*shrug* thats what I know. As far as French Canadians are concerned we are for the most part quite homogenous especially in the rural areas. Family generally seems to fit the profile too so I figure its the best assumption I can make and its what family history says.
