Cyneheard was a nobleman and a conspirator against King Alfred who worked to convince Aethelred to overthrow his half-brother. When Aethelred second-guessed his decision, he believed Wessex to be doomed. He was arrested for treason and tortured, eventually he broke and revealed the conspirators, including Aethelred to be the ring leader. He was later hanged along with the other conspirators, but not before declaring death to King Alfred.
