King Ethelred is the father of Princess Daphne and the Queen's husband. He first appears in the cartoon series and mentioned in the manual of Dragon's Lair (Software Projects). He is short and round and stutters, and seems to be very fond of his daughter.


The name Ethelred is borrowed from the many Anglo-Saxon Kings with the name Æthelred. The name means "noble counsel".
