Notes for AEthelbert "King" of Wessex

∆ T H E L B E R T
(860-66 AD)

Very little is known about ∆thelbert, who took hisrightful place
in the line of succession to the throne of Wessex ataround 30
years of age. Like all other rulers of his day, he hadto contend
with Viking raids on his territories, and even had tobattle them in
his capital city of Winchester. Apparently, hismilitary leadership
was adequate, since, on this occasion, the Vikings werecut off
on their retreat to the coast and were slaughtered,according to a
contemporary source, in a "bloody battle."
