Description After the death of Edward 2 Alfred 33 conspired to blind ∆thelstan 18 at Winchester. When his machinations were exposed, he was sent of to the church of Rome to answer for himself on oath before Pope John 32. He did so at the altar of St Peter, but after swearing it he collapsed and was carried by his men to the School of the English, where he died two nights later. ∆thelstan 18 gave Alfred 33 Christian burial, little though he deserved it, and took over his property.
