Asser

(ăs`ər), d. 909, Welsh clergyman, monk of St. David's Abbey, Pembrokeshire. He went c.884 to the court of King Alfred, helped Alfred learn Latin, and later was made a bishop. He is remembered for his biography of Alfred to 893, apparently modeled on that of Charlemagne by Einhard. He combined a translation of some text of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle with his original observations on Alfred's life.
