Notes par Ethelbald King of Wessex

ETHELBALD & ETHELBERT 858 On Ethelwulf's death in 858, his son Ethelbald was already ruling Wessex. The remaining South East kingdoms passed to Ethelwulf's second son Ethelbert. Ethelbald married his father's widow. On Ethelbald's death in 860, the Wessex kingdom was re-united with Kent and the adjoining kingdoms under Ethelbert. Both Ethelbald and Ethelbert were buried at Sherborne. Elsewhere, in 861 the Vikings discovered Iceland and in the same year St.Swithin died. It is interesting that the Anglo-Saxon lords of the time were called Ealdormen (Elder-men) this title was later changed to the Norse name of Earl. The title of senior councillors - Aldermen - which was in use until recent times, is derived from the Anglo-Saxon Ealdormen.
