(d. 633),

king of Northumbria (617–33). The son of Ælle, king of Deira, Edwin was driven into exile during the reign in Northumbria of *Æthelfryth. With East Anglian aid he defeated and killed Æthelfryth in 617. His marriage to a Kentish princess in 625 brought a Christian mission to Northumbria led by Paulinus. According to Bede, Edwin gained authority over the whole of Britain, excluding Kent, but including Anglesey and Man. In 633 he was defeated and killed by Penda, king of Mercia, and Cadwallon, king of Gwynedd, at Heathfield.
