ÆTHELFLEDA.  Variant of Anglo-Saxon Aethelfled (q.v.), meaning "noble increase." (A History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)

... Shortly after Duke Aethelred died, leaving only a daughter to carry on his line. At the moment his decease made little difference, for his widow Aethelfleda took up the reigns of government without opposition, and for nearly eight years (912-919) led the Mercian forces with a skill and energy which few women rulers have ever equalled. (The Cambridge Medieval History: Germany & the Western Empire, Bury, 1922)
