Death: the mercian trilogy - Æthelbald of Mercia - Wikipedia



The Mercian Supremacy was the period of Anglo-Saxon history between 600 and 900, [1] when the kingdom of Mercia dominated the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy . Sir Frank Stenton apparently coined the phrase, arguing that Offa of Mercia who ruled 757–796 achieved the unification of England south of the Humber estuary. [2] Scholastic opinion on the relationship between the kingdoms of Wessex and Mercia at this time remains divided.

While the precise period during which the Mercian Supremacy existed remains uncertain – depending upon whether one includes the reigns of Penda (c. 626–655) and Wulfhere (658–675) – the end of the era is generally agreed to be around 825, following the defeat of King Beornwulf at the Battle of Ellandun , (near the present Swindon ).

Nicholas Brooks noted that "the Mercians stand out as by far the most successful of the various early Anglo-Saxon peoples until the later ninth century" and with the exception of three years under Northumbrian domination, this is true between the years 633 and 825. [3]

The kingdom was at war with Camelot for many years. Finally, Bayard and Uther Pendragon agreed to a peace treaty , which was almost upset when Nimueh framed Bayard for the attempted assassination of Arthur Pendragon . Uther 's court physician Gaius uncovered the truth before Mercia's troops attacked Camelot for Bayard 's imprisonment, and the two kingdom's presumably reached a peaceful settlement after that ( The Poisoned Chalice ).

When Morgana and Gwen were kidnapped and Kendrick 's men intended to hold them hostage, Arthur believed Mercia was behind it because of the swordcraft ( Lancelot and Guinevere ).

When Arthur went on a quest for the Fisher King 's trident, Mercia appeared on the map so it's presumed that he went past the kingdom ( The Eye of the Phoenix ).
