Quick Reference

(‘Little’), son of Saeweard, succeeded c.617 on the death in battle of his father and uncle. Though his immediate predecessors had not been fortunate, Sigeberht remained a pagan. The reconversion of the East Saxons, which resulted from the death in battle of Penda, pagan king of Mercia, in 655, suggests a long reign for Sigeberht, ending, perhaps, c.650.
