135 – A Reshuffling of Power

Today we’re going to cover the eventful years of 675 to 678, and our main characters will be…

King Wulfhere of Mercia, Son of Penda and tough guy with a bloodied lip.
King Ecgfrith of Northumbria, Son of Oswiu and guy who bloodied Wulfhere’s lip.
And Bishop Wilfrid… the Northumbrian Bishop who was a key player in converting Northumbria to Roman Catholicism and also a key player in keeping King Ecgfrith childless. A remarkably stupid move for someone who was reported to be intelligent.
