List of Anglo-Welsh Wars - Ninth Century

Ninth Century

During the first half of the century a reinvigorated Mercia almost conquers the rest of Wales. At the end of the century Viking raids on England bring the Welsh some respite.

  • 815 where Egbert of Wessex invades Cornwall and subdues the kingdom.
  • 816 Mercians invade Powys.
  • 822 where Beornwulf of Mercia invades north Wales and captures Deganwy from Gwynedd and occupies the whole of Powys.
  • 825 Battle of Camelford between Wessex and the Cornish Welsh resulting in another West Saxon victory.
  • 828 the lands of Powys are liberated from Mercian occupation by Cyngen ap Cadell. The Pillar of Eliseg was probably commissioned at this time.
  • 830 where Egbert of Wessex invades Powys and forces Cyngen ap Cadell to submit. Egbert then withdraws his forces.
  • 838 Battle of Hingston Down in Devon where a combined force of Cornish Welsh and Vikings were defeated by Wessex. Egbert's Stone is erected to commemorate this victory.
  • 853 where Burgred of Mercia overruns Powys. Cyngan ap Cadell abdicates and retires to Rome and his kingdom is annexed by Rhodri Mawr of Gwynedd.
  • 865 where Burgred of Mercia leads his forces against Rhodri Mawr and captures Anglesey, briefly, from Gwynedd. Burgred is later forced to withdraw as his realm is invaded by the Vikings.
  • 878 the Welsh of Strathclyde in alliance with Kenneth MacAlpin invade northern Northumbria, currently at war with the Vikings, and liberate the Lothian region.
  • 890 at least some of the "men of Strathclyde" are forced to relocate to Gwynedd after their kingdom, much weakened by the Vikings, is overrun by Angles and Scots.

Famous quotes containing the word ninth:

    So in majestic cadence rise and fall
    The mighty undulations of thy song,
    O sightless bard, England’s Monides!
    And ever and anon, high over all
    Uplifted, a ninth wave superb and strong,
    Floods all the soul with its melodious seas.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)
