Abstract: We will prove that if the unit rank of a number field with cyclic class group is large enough and if the Galois group of its Hilbert class field over $ \mathbb{Q}$ is abelian, then every generator of its class group is a Euclidean ideal class. We use this to prove the existence of a non-principal Euclidean ideal class that is not norm-Euclidean by showing that $ \mathbb{Q}(\sqrt {5}, \sqrt {21}, \sqrt {22})$ has such an ideal class.
