Saint Edred of England (c. 923 - November 23, 955) was King of England from 946 until his death. His feast day is November 23. He referred to himself as "King of the Anglo-Saxons and Emperor of the whole of Britain." Edred was an extremely religious man, but suffered from poor health. He never married and had no heirs. He was succeeded to the throne by his nephew, Edwy.
