The son of Aethelred II (The Unready), and half-brother of Harthacnut. 'The Confessor' title was due to his piousness, and he was canonised as a saint. He is considered to be the last king of the House of Wessex.
His coinage characteristically has a broad variation in weight within and between types varying in both diameter and thickness.
