What took place on 15 June 1215?

20 November, 869

Death of St Edmund

A Danish force under Ivar defeated and killed Edmund, king of the East Angles, at Hoxne, Suffolk. Edmund was later sanctified as St Edmund. His death is a frequent theme in medieval wall paintings, where he is represented tied to a stake, while Danish archers shoot at him.

This pious king was married to Eleanor of Provence
