  • Cyneheard, brother of the late king Sigeberht, ambushes and kills his rival Cynewulf of Wessex, while he is at Meretun (now called Marten) with his mistress. The Wessex nobles refuse to recognise Cyneheard as king.
  • Cyneheard is executed and succeeded by Beorhtric, through the support of King Offa of Mercia. His rival claimant to the Wessex throne, a distant nephew of the late king Ine, named Egbert, is driven across the Channel.
  • Egbert settles at the court of Charlemagne, and learns the arts of government during his time in Gaul.[13] During his stay he meets Eadberht, a priest, who later becomes king of Kent.
