Note: #N210
Note N210King of Kent
Ealhmund was born in 745 and died in 827. Ealhmund, was King of Kent in 784. His father was Eoffa de Wessex.
There is little historical evidence for his reign. An abstract of a charter dated 784 survives [1], in which Ealhmund granted land to the Abbot of Reculver. But by the following year Offa of Mercia seems to have been ruling directly, as he issued a charter [2] without any mention of a local king.
According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, Ealhmund was the father of Ecgberht III, later King of Wessex and Kent and son of Eafa the West Saxon, and therefore a member of the House of Wessex
Name: Ealhmund of Kent //
Given Name: Ealhmund of Kent
Note: ref: Wikipedia (http://www. wikipedia.org) (04 Apr 10) -
In 784 a new king of Kent, Ealhmund, appears in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. According to a note in the margin, "this king Ealhmund was Egbert's father [i.e. Egbert of Wessex], Egbert was Æthelwulf's father". This is supported by the genealogical preface from the A text of the Chronicle, which gives Egbert's father's name as Ealhmund without further details. The preface probably dates from the late ninth century; the marginal note is on the F manuscript of the Chronicle, which is a Kentish version.ee
