Kings of Wessex

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

Cerdic 532-534
Cynric 534-560
Ceawlin 560-591 dep. 593 d.
Ceol 591-597
Ceolwulf 597-611
Cynegils 611-643
Cenwealh 643-672
Sexburh 672-674 d. Queen of Wessex, wife of Cenwealh
Aescwine 674-676 d.

Egbert manages to unify the seperate realms into the single kingdom and becomes Egbert I of England
