Short Biography

Eadric Streona was born the son of Aethelric, a thegn. The place and year of his birth are not known. His father attended the court of King Aethelred the Unready but did not have a position of note. Eadric made himself useful to the king and in 1006 carried out the murder of Aelfhelm of York who supported Canute.

Eadric married Edgyth, one of Aethelred’s daughter and was created Ealdorman of Mercia. He remained in favour throughout Aethelred’s reign but after Canute took the throne in 1016 he fell from favour and was executed by Canute in December 1017.
