Quick Reference

Joint ruler of the Hwicces with Eanberht and Uhtred in the 750s, made a grant by himself in 778 to St Mary's, Worcester, which suggests that he outlived them. He was then acting as sub-king for Offa of Mercia. No more kings or sub-kings of the Hwicces have been identified, but Aethelmund is described as princeps (prince) in a charter of Ecgfrith of Mercia in 796, and his son, Aethelric, granted lands in 804. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for 802 identified Aethelmund as an ealdorman of the Hwicces, killed in battle near Kempsford by the men of Wiltshire, who were fighting for Wessex.
