King Alfred "the Great" (848 – October 26, 899), king of Wessex from 871 to 899 was the 32nd great-grandfather of Evelyn Virginia BIRD Linton (1922-2012) with linage through her father Jeff Augustus "Gus" BIRD (1893-1954) and her 3rd great-grandmother Mary ROSS (1738-1790).

Quote: by King Alfred "the Great" (848 – October 26, 899), king of Wessex from 871 to 899 "I desired to live worthily as long as I lived, and to leave after my life, to the men who should come after me, the memory of me in good works."

Ælfred or Alfred the Great (848 or 849 – October 26, 899), king of Wessex from 871 to 899, was responsible for turning back the Danish invasion of Wessex and for promoting a revival of education, scholarship, law and administration. His translations of theological and philosophical works into Old English are sometimes said to have laid the foundations of English prose.

Alfred successfully defended his kingdom against the Viking attempt at conquest, and by the time of his death had become the dominant ruler in England. He is the only English monarch to be accorded the epithet "the Great". Alfred was the first King of the West Saxons to style himself "King of the Anglo-Saxons". Details of his life are described in a work by the 10th century Welsh scholar and bishop Asser. Alfred's reputation has been that of a learned and merciful man who encouraged education and improved his kingdom's legal system and military structure.
