King Edmund ruled from 855-869AD. He was killed by the pagan vikings during their great invasion in the late 9th century. He was soon regarded as a saint and martyr. One of the great monasteries of Europe grew up around his shrine at Bury St Edmunds. He was the patron Saint of England in the middle ages. His symbol is on the coat of Arms of the Borough council.
