Æthelnoth the good, son of Æthelmær the Stout, grandson of Æthelweard the Historian. Monk at Glastonbury, Archbishop in Canterbury, Chaplain to the King.
He was baptised by Dunstan, and a story was told at Glastonbury Abbey that as he was baptised his hand made a motion much like that an archbishop makes when blessing. Æthelnoth died in 1038 and was buried in Canterbury Cathedral. Æthelnoth was a remarkable man, “so thoroughly a product of Anglo-Saxon society … who become someone who worked closely with the Danish conqueror Cnut”
