THE ANNALS OF ROGER DE HOVEDEN. INTRODUCTION. AT the beginning of this work, I propose to trace the genealogical line of the kings of Northumbria,* down to the times of those, who, coming after the death of the most venerable Bede, have not hitherto been treated of. Ida held the sovereignty twelve years ; l after whose death Glappa reigned one year. He was succeeded by Adda, whose reign lasted eight years ; on whose decease Ethelric became king, and reigned seven years. Theoderic succeeded him, and, after a reign of four years, lost his life and left the kingdom to Fridubuld. He, having reigned one year, was succeeded by Huscus,2 who, after a reign of seven years, lost his kingdom and his life. Ethelfred, the most distinguished for valour among these kings, was the eighth in succession, and reigned for a period of twenty-eight years. He was succeeded by King Edwin, who having embraced Christianity, as king and martyr ascended tó heaven, after a reign of seventeen years. After him, Oswald, a most Christian king, reigned over Northuinbria for a period of seven years. He having ascended to the mysterious realms of heaven, Oswy succeeded him as king, and held the government twenty-eight j-ears. He being * It is worthy of remark, that the account here given of the Northumbrian kings, differs very materially from that of Bede, William of Malmesbury, and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. 1 V. r. Eleven years. 2 V. r. IIussus. VOL. I. Β
