Succeeded in northern Bernicia in 878 and is said to have been a supporter (dilectus) of Alfred of Wessex. He ruled from Bamburgh until 913 when he was succeeded by his son. The chronicle of Aethelweard reported that he ruled as reeve (actori), though he is sometimes referred to as an ealdorman. The History of St Cuthbert suggests that he may have been killed by Edred, a son of Ricsige.
