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.
