http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/ENGLAND,%20AngloSaxon%20&%20Danish%20K ings.htm ÆLFGIFU, daughter of --- & his wife Wynflæd --- (-Shaftesb ury Abbey after 943). "Alfgifu concubine regis" subscribed a 943 chart er of King Edmund [1]. This reference suggests that Ælfgifu was not m arried to King Edmund, corroborated by another charter of the same yea r in which his [second] wife is differentiated by the epithet "regina " and the dating of which (if accurate) suggests that the king's relat ionship with both "wives" was simultaneous. If this is correct, Ælfgi fu's date of death cannot necessarily be assumed to be [944/46]. She w as popularly reputed a saint after her death as St Elgiva [2]. Ælfgif u was probably the daughter of Wynflæd as "Wynflæd aua mea" is name d in King Edgar's grant of confirmations to Shaftesbury Abbey dated 96 6 [3]. [1] S 516. [2] Weir (2002), p. 17. [3] S 776.
