Edward the Confessor (1003-1066)

Edward was the oldest son of Ethelred II (Ethelred the Unready http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethelred_the_Unready ) and Emma of Normandy ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emma_of_Normandy ). He wast he penultimate Anglo- Saxon king of England .

Godwin was the most important nobleman in England. They had no children as Edward had taken a vow of celibacy. Even this marriage couldn’t prevent a breach between Godwin and Edward in 1049.
