Æthelflæd, Lady of the Mercians, daughter of King Alfred the Great, Anglo Saxon Queen in all but name. She was instrumental in restoring the Mercian territories seized and occupied by the Vikings, and she lay the foundations for the first unification of all England under her adopted son, Æthelstan. A woman in a man’s world, what kind of woman was she? How did she gain the respect of the powerful lords over whom she governed? How did she succeed where her father failed? This illustrated talk attempts to shed light on this fascinating woman and her life.
