Goneril (died 870s) was the eldest daughter of Lerion, a wealthy East Anglian ealdorman who plotted to kill the Mercian king Burgred. The plot was foiled by King Edmund of East Anglia before it had hatched, leading to Lerion's arrest and execution for treason. Goneril and her sisters, fearing they would suffer their father's fate or worse, fled into the fens of East Anglia and disappeared.
Behind the scenes
Goneril is a character appearing in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, where she is portrayed by Roanna Cochrane, who also provides the voice for Tekla. Goneril is likely based upon the character of the same name from William Shakespeare's 1605 play King Lear.
