CENRED

HUSBAND:
CENRED. [CHART A1].
Son of COELWALD. (Ceowald).

Cenred of Wessex was a member of the House of Wessex and a member of the direct male line from Cynric to Egbert. It is possible that Cenred ruled alongside his son Ine for a period. There is weak evidence for joint kingships, and stronger evidence of subkings reigning under a dominant ruler in Wessex, not long before his time. Ine acknowledges his father's help in his code of laws, and there is also a surviving land-grant that indicates Cenred was still reigning in Wessex after Ine's accession. (S2).

His father was Ceolwald of Wessex. Cenred had at least three other children: Ingild, the great-grandfather of Ealhmund of Kent, and the great-great grandfather of Egbert; Cuthburh, who married Aldfrith of Northumbria, and became abbess of Wimborne; and Cwenburh, who may have succeeded her sister as abbess at Wimborne. (S2).

CHILDREN of Cenred:
  1. Cuenburg (Cwenburh). Of Wimborne. She may have succeeded her sister as abbess at Wimborne.
  2. Cuthburg. (Cuthburh). She married Aldfrid (Aldfrith), King of Northumbria. She became abbess of Wimborne.
  3. Ine. King of Wessex from 688 to 726. Married Aethelburg (Ethelburh). In 726 he resigned his throne and went on pilgrimage to Rome, there to end his days. There is a legend telling that his wife induced him to give up his crown. He so impressed the Romans that they regarded him as a saint. He died in 728 at Rome.
  4. INGILD. [CHART A1]. He died in 718 A.D.
