Fascinating names of early English Monarchs

In rank order of fascinating-ness:

1.  Aethelred the Unready (pictured above). 978-1016 (except parts of 1013-1014)
2.  Sven Forkbeard (1013-1014)
3. Empress Matilda (1141)
4. Cnut the Great (1016-1035)
5. Edmund Ironside (1016)

I still think the Viking Harold Bluetooth had the perfect name for a medieval monarch.
