Who is Ælfhelm of York?

ælfhelm Of York a.k.a. Ælfhelm of York: Ælfhelm was the ealdorman of Northumbria, in practice southern Northumbria, from about 994 until his death. An ealdorman was a senior nobleman who governed a province—a shire or group of shires—on behalf of the king.

Ælfhelm first appears in charters as dux in about 994.
