Edith (Eadgyth) of East Anglia, wife of Edmund II of England (circa 963 -1017 ) was married to Sigeferth , a supporter of Edmund Ironside against his father, Ethelred the Unready . Sigeferth was killed on orders of Ethelred in 1015 by being invited to a feast with Ealdorman Morcar by Eadric Streona and then both were murdered whilst drunk. Edmund II took Edith from the nunnery she had been sent to and married her. They would have two children before Edmund's death in 1016 , Edward and Edmund . Edith hanged herself soon after, before her sons were sent to Kiev in 1017 .
