Wessex (West Saxons) is an Anglo-Saxon kingdom located in the south of England.
In Vikings Edit
It is likely that Wessex is the strongest kingdom in England at this time, due to the recent civil war in the once powerful Kingdom of Mercia. Wessex is ruled by King Ecbert with his son, Aethelwulf acting as crown prince and heir. Wessex borders the Kingdom of Mercia along the Thames River.
Wessex currently has a military alliance with the Kingdom of Northumbria, under King Aelle. It now claims sovereignty over the Kingdom of Mercia, as Mercia's last male heir abdicated his rights to the throne and declared Ecbert his heir.
The court of Wessex is composed:
- King Aethelwulf;
- Queen Judith;
- Prince Aethelred;
- Prince Alfred;
- Ealdorman Werferth;
- Father Prudentius.
Former members of the court:
- Prince Magnus; (banished by Aethelwulf).
