Wulfhelm archbishop of Canterbury, was consecrated by archbishop Athelm, to whom, both at Wells and at Canterbury, he was the successor. One of the first public acts he was called upon to perform, within two years of his appointment, was to officiate at the coronation of Athelstan, which occurred in 925. In January, soon after the coronation, his services were required at Tamworth, to officiate at a political marriage. Again, at a later period, the good offices of the archbishop of Canterbury were required at the marriage of the daughter of Edward the Elder to Hugh the Great, count of Paris, the son of Robert I. As a ruler he was discreet, and did much to civilize the people and promote Church privileges. He died in 942. See Hook, Lives of the Archbishops of Canterbury, 1:339 sq.
