Oswald Iding or 'Whiteblade' ruled Northumbria for just eight years after a youth spent in exile. Bede gives an account of his life which provides a glimpse of an heroic figure who may be the 'real' Beowulf. Certainly Tolkien used him as the model for his prodigal prince, Aragorn, in The Lord of the Rings. SCARCE.
