Who succeeded when both Sigeberht and Ecgric were killed by the Mercians c.635, was a son of Raedwald's brother Eni, suggesting that he was middle-aged when he became king. He was killed in 654 by Penda of Mercia. Bede called him ‘a very religious man and noble both in mind and deed’, and reported that he converted Cenwealh of Wessex when he took refuge with the East Anglians. He is said to have been buried at Blythburgh in Suffolk. His family was notable for piety: of his daughters, Aethelfryth married Ecgfrith of Northumbria and became abbess of Ely; Seaxburh married Earconberht of Kent and succeeded her sister as abbess of Ely; Aethelburh was abbess of Faremoûtier-en-Brie, near Meaux; Wihtburh was a nun at Ely; Saethryth, a stepdaughter, was also abbess at Faremoûtier.
