  1. Bronze:
    1. Ethelwulf, Alfred the great, Edward the elder, Edwy, Edward III, Harold II.
    2. Ethelwulf was the first king on the table because it shows on his date that his reign started in 839. That’s the earliest date someone has had on the table.
    3. Harold II was the last king on the table because it shows on his date that his reign had started in 1066. That’s the latest date someone has had on the table.

    Silver:
    Edward the elder, Edward III, Alfred the Great, Ethelwulf, Edwy, Harold II

    Gold:
    Edward the Elder was Alfred the Great’s son because the same year Alfred died, Edward took over.

  2. Etherluwulf- 839-856
    King Alfred – 871-899
    Edward the elder 899-924
    Edward III 1042-1066
    Edwy II 955-959
    Harold II 1066-1066

    Silver
    King Alfred was king was 28y
    Edward was 25 y
    Elwulf was 17y
    Edward III was 24y
    Edward was 4y
    Harold II was ten moths
    Gold
    Is Edward the elder

    I know this because Alfred reign ended in 899

  3. Gold:
    I think Alfred the Great’s son is most likely to be Edward the Elder because Alfred the Great’s reign finished when Edward the Elder’s reign started, (as you can see in the table). I also think that King Alfred’s son was Edward the Elder because they had a similar amount of time as king, Alfred the Great has 28 years as king, and Edward the Elder had 25 years as king.

  4. Edward I I I was first because he was king at 1042
    Alfred was last he was king at 871

    Gold
    It’s most likely to be Edward the elder because after Alfred’s reign ended
    That’s when Edward the elder’s reign started.

  6. Bronze
    Ethelwulf-839
    Alfred the Great-871
    Edward the elder-899
    Edwy-955
    Edward-1042
    Harold-January 1066
    I think Ethelwulf came first because the smallest number comes first.
    I think Harold came last because the biggest number comes last.

      It should be Edward the elder because it is next in line and if it is elder that means the son was born first.

    I think Edward the Elder is Alfred the great son because Edward the Elder is the next king because the farther king stayed in for 28 years which is the time his son grew up and was old enough to be the king.

  10. Bronze

    Ethelwulf came first because his reign year is earlier than the others.
    Last was Harold II because his reign year is later than the others

    GOLD
    A king was usually succeeded by their sons. Using the information from the table who was likely to have been Alfred the Great’s son. How do you know?
    Edward the elder was most likely Alfreds son because the time that Alfred’s reign finished on 899(most likely due to death) Edward received the reign on 899. this confirms the idea that Edward is the son of Alfred.

    silver
    Harold II had the smallest gap because it has the gap of 10 months and all the other people have years not months. Edwy has the second last gap because it is a gap of 3 years and all the other numbers are bigger than 3 years. Ethelwulf is third last because he has a gap of 17 years and nobody else has a gap of 17 or under. Edward III has the fourth last because he has a gap of 24 and nobody has a smaller gap. Edward the elder is the fifth last because he has a gap of 25 and nobody has a smaller number. Alfred has the biggest number because he has a huge number of 28 and nobody else has a bigger number.

    Edward the third came last because he started the latest.
    I think it is Ethewulf

    Edward the Elder
    He was used by historians to take away him from the later King Edward the Martyr.

  34. Bronze :
    I think it goes like this 📍
    • Alfred – 871 – 899
    I notice that was the smallest and came first because it has the smallest hundred and ten.

    •Harold I I – January 1066 – October 1066
    This one has bigger numbers than the other numbers .

    Silver :
    I think it goes like this 📍
    • Harold I I

    • Edward I I I

    • edwy

    •Edward the elder

    • Alfred the great

    • Ethelwulf

    Gold :
    I think it is this 📍
    I think Alfred the great son is Ethelwulf because on the chart on his line it says 839 and that is why I have got it .

    Today I have learnt a lot I have done it all by my self I’m so proud of my self xxx
