After him Edmund succeeded to the neglected kingdom, A. 948. After seven years, therefore, bishop Wulfstan and the duke of the Mercians expelled certain deserters, namely, Reginald and Anlaf from the city of York, and gave them into the king's hand. In the same year died also queen Elfgiva, wife of king Edmund, and afterwards was canonized. In her tomb, with God's assistance, even to the present day, miracles are performed in the monastery called Shaftesbury. In the same period also died king Edmund on the solemnity of Augustine the Less, who also was the apostle of the English : and he held the kingdom six years and a half. CHAP. VII.— O f the reign of king Edred. Edmund's successor was Edred his brother, to whom all the Northumbrians became subject ; and the Scots also give oaths of allegiance and immutable fidelity. Not long after these things he also departed in peace, on the birthday of the blessed pope and martyr Clement. He had held the kingdom nine years and half. CHAP. VIII.— O f king Edwy. His successor to the throne was Edwy, who, on account of his great personal beauty, was called Pankalus by the people. He held the sovereignty four years, and was much, beloved. CHAP. IX.— O f the reign of king Edgar. A. 959. After this, Edgar was crowned, and he was an admirable king.* Moreover from the nativity of our Lord and Saviour wae then completed the number of 973 years.* HERE HAPPILY ENDS THE FOURTH BOOK OP FABIUS ETHELWERD, QUESTOR AND PATRICIAN. * Here follow two seta of Latin verses, of a most obscure and ungranv matical character, and altogether untranslateable.
