Edith was born to the reigning English king Edward the Elder by his second wife, Ælfflæd, and hence was granddaughter of Alfred the Great. Nothing is known of her until in order to seal an alliance between two Saxon kingdoms, her half-brother, King Athelstan of England, sent two of his sisters (Eadgyth and Eadgifu of Wessex) to Germany, instructing the Duke of Saxony (later Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor) to choose whichever one pleased him best. Otto chose Edith and married her in 929.

Ædgyth married Otto "the Great" of Saxony Holy Roman Emperor, son of Heinrich I "the Fowler" King of Saxony Holy Roman Emperor and Mechtilde of Ringleheim.160 (Otto "the Great" of Saxony Holy Roman Emperor was born on 23 Nov 912 in Saxony 160 and died on 7 May 973 in Memleben, Saxony 160.)
