eadred, the next king, was a prince of weak health, fonder of the church than the battle-field.
During the reign of eadred he held the office of royal treasurer.
With eadred's victory in fact the struggle seemed to have reached its close.
eadred harried and burnt the province, which he then handed over to an earl of his own creation, one of the Bamborough family.
Before the end of eadred's reign there were ealdormen who ruled over many shires.
