Scholarly Info
Description As Christmas of 1065 approached, everything was ready for the consecrating of the church of St Peter at Westminster. But on Christmas eve Edward 15 began to get worse. Concealing this fact, however, he spent Christmas Day both in the church and in the palace rejoicing with his nobles. But on the morrow, when he could hide it no longer, he began to rest apart and sent messengers to carry out the dedication of his monastery through fitting persons. His consort [Eadgyth 3] exerted herself on the orders of the noble king so that the sacrament of the holy consecration should be completed.
Year Range 1065 - 1066
