Roll of the Kings of Northumbria

These are the dates for their reign, beginning to end. There are some cases where the end of the reign was not the end of their life, so I give the death date if I know it. I have tried to give some indication (where I can) of how they died (or ended their reign.)
ab. = abdicated,  kib. = killed in battle, as. = assassinated, ex. = executed, dep = deposed

Northumbria is located in the north of England, basically the whole of England north of the Trent. Plus a bit of southern Scotland.
