Anglo Saxon - Kings of Northumbria - AE Styca (12mm) AETHELRED II [841-50] - Moneyer - EANRED obv. +EDllRED REX, pellet in a circle; rev. +EANRED, cross in center Spink 865 Also known as Æthelred the Unready (from the Old English unræd meaning "poorly advised"). I get a variety of dates as ruler for Aethelred II, and the Spink date of 841-850 is not among them. I will do some additional research, but I would appreciate any assistance concerning the dates.
