"First Earl of Huntingdon. Son of Siward Bjornsson, Earl of Northumbria, and Aefflaed of Bernicia, daughter of Ealdred, Earl of Bambaugh.. In 1070, he married Judith of Lens, daughter of Lambert II, Count of Lens, and Adelaide of Normandy, sister of William the Conqueror (William I).

Last anglo-saxon aristocrat and the only noble executed under the reign of William I. He joined the revolt of Earls against William and was beheaded, his body being thrown in a ditch. He was buried in the chapter house at Croyland Abby, at the request of his wife, then moved to the Abbey itself in 1092 when the chapter house was destroyed by fire (for more, see Wikipedia, "Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria").
