No. Not from what it looks like.

Hint: He is one of my ancestors(it doesn't help I know just wanted to throw that out).

Actual hint: He was not a liked king, neither in this time or his.

Did he come to power after Ethelred?

I don't recall rulers from that House with viking blood, at least based on what I remember. This is all Wiki free.

No.

Like I said I'm not 100% sure what house he's from.

Hint: He was mostly known for conquering. Hence his nickname.
