This is from a booklet I bought several years ago at Windsor Castle.
Written by Patrick W. Montague-Smith, late editor of Debrette's Peerage.
Will somebody please correct me if I'm wrong?
Anyway, Egbert's father was Ealhmund, under-king of Kent 786. The ancestry
given is:
1. Egbert, King of Wessex, 802-839
2. Ealhmund
4. Eaba
8. Eoppa
16. Ingild d. 718
32. Cenred
64. Ceolwald
128. Cuthwulf (Cutha)
256. Cuthwine
512. Ceawlin r. 560-591 deposed by Ceolric; d. 593
1024. Cynric 534-560
2048. Cedric, 1st King of West Saxons d. 534
And I think this line is bogus.
Respectfully,
Chuck Wolfram
