Mainly ice-covered mountain, 2,470 m, 3 mi SE of Mount Ethelwulf and 8 mi inland from George VI Sound, in the Douglas Range of Alexander Island. Probably first observed by Lincoln Ellsworth, who photographed the E side of the Douglas Range from the air on Nov. 23, 1935. Its E face was roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE. Resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS and named for Ethelred I, Saxon king of England, 865-871. The W face of the mountain was mapped from air photos taken by the RARE, 1947-48, by Searle of the FIDS in 1960.
