Ecgberht of Kent

Ecgberht (or Egbert) (died 4 July 673) was a King of Kent (sometimes called Egbert I) who ruled from 664 to 673, succeeding his father Eorcenberht.He may have still been a child when he became king following his father's death on 14 July 664, because his mother Seaxburh was recorded as having been regent.Ecgberht's court seems to have had many diplomatic and ecclesiastic contacts.
