Æthelflæd, Lady of Mercia

Model by Belt Fed, painted by me.

Æthelflæd, Myrcna hlæfdige, was the eldest daughter of Alfred the Great, King of Wessex. She married a Mercian ealdorman and became the ruler of Mercia, Wales and York after winning a series of battles against the Vikings and Welsh.

One of Britain's great women rulers and warlords.


  1. Very nice, John. I had previously looked for Medieval ladies - that link has some very lovely lady minis.
