Saint Edward the Confessor

 

Son of Ethelred the Unready.  Saint and King. The learned sources Sellar and Yeatman explain his reign thus:

Edward the Confessor was with difficulty prevented from confessing to all these and many other crimes committed in his reign, as he was in the habit of confessing everything whether he had done it or not, and was thus a Weak King.

 

I’m sure there was more to it than that.
