Who was King Penda?



Penda is a import king in Brytenwalda. Before talk to him, you should know who he is.
He did Mercia!

Impresive article about who was Penda: http://www.tha-engliscan-gesithas.org.uk/archives/penda-of-mercia

Good idea with some history lessons.  :smile:
I had no idea King Penda's Mercia reached as far as the southern coast.
Interesting to read how Penda was the last heathen king,
and yet there were other kings who never quite left behind their heathen ways, and were even buried/burned by them.

We are told King Raedwald of the East Englas maintained a shrine to Christ and a shrone to "Devils" by Bede, which presumably means the pagan gods. If Sutton Hoo truly is his burial site, he also has what modern people would think of as a pretty "pagan" burial, but with lots of very Christian objects, like a pair of silver baptismal spoons.

Don't forget about Vortigern Studies: http://www.vortigernstudies.org.uk/vortigernhomepage.htm

Interesting books I own about this period:
Battles of the Dark Ages, by Peter Marren
Pendragon, The Definitive Account of the Origins of Arthur, by Steve Blake and Scott Lloyd
In Search of the Dark Ages, by Michael Wood
Britain AD, by Francis Pryor (too extravagant IMO)
AD 500, by Simon Young (presented as a novel, but very very very fun and interesting)

Did you use Google translator or something, Idibil? Not trying to sound rude but your posts are almost unreadable half the time.
