Ælfsige (or Aelfsige; died 959) was Bishop of Winchester before he became Archbishop of Canterbury in 959.


Ælfsige became Bishop of Winchester in 951.[1] In 958 he was translated from the see of Winchester to become archbishop of Canterbury.[2]

Ælfsige died of cold in the Alps as he journeyed to Rome to be given his pallium by Pope John XII.[3] In his place King Eadwig nominated Byrhthelm. Ælfsige's will survives and shows that he was married,[4] with a son, Godwine of Worthy, who died in 1001 fighting against the Vikings.[5]
