Moment of Silence for Alfred the GreatSubmitted by donvino on Fri, 10/26/2012 - 18:48
Passed away today in 899.
King of the West Saxons/Wessex 871-899
I have a feeling many of you know of his contributions to the world as we know it today.
I will have a toast in honor of him.
Thanks Alfred ...well done...you will not be forgotten !!
Cheers to Alfred !!!,
Alfred the King of the Anglo-Saxons, the son of the most pious King Ethelwulf, the famous, the warlike, the victorious, the careful provider for the widow, the helpless, the orphan and the poor, the most skilled of Saxon poets, most dear to his own nation, courteous to all, most liberal, endowed with prudence, fortitude, justice and temperance; most patient in the infirmity from which he continually suffered; the most discerning investigator in executing justice, most watchful and devout in the service of God."
