User comments for Æðelric (Meaning / History Only)

The earliest appearance of the name ÆÐELRIC (or Æthelric) is 568 in Bernicia which is now Northern England and Southern Scotland. It's unclear exactly who he was, however he was either a King of Bernicia or Deira or both, elder brother or uncle of King Edwin of Deira, or the father of King Æthelfrith of Bernicia.

The name was also used by Æthelric, King of Hwicce in 692. Other figures include four Bishops ranging from the year 1001 to 1076 and Æthelric, Archbishop of York in 1041.
