Quick Reference

Who succeeded on the abdication of Offa, was presumably a member of the East Saxon royal house, since his accession does not seem to have been disputed. We have no details of his reign, during which Essex was under the influence of Mercia, but Symeon of Durham gave his death as 738. He may have reigned jointly for some time with Selered.
