Wessex (West Saxons) is an Anglo-Saxon kingdom located in the south of England.
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 was ruled by King Ecbert. Aethelwulf was made King before Ecbert's capture. Wessex borders the Kingdom of Mercia along the Thames River.
Wessex currently had 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.
