      Reigned 1042-1066. Named for his piety and his foundation of a new
      Westminster Abbey (consecrated in 1065). He lived in Normandy (1016-41) and
      his early reign was dominated by rivalry between his Norman favourites and
      his father-in-Law. After 1053 the Goodwins were in the ascendant. Edward's
      childlessness led ultimately to the Norman conquest. He was canonized in 1161.
      His feast day is 13th October.
