Kingdom of Kent and Egbert the Second
« Reply #1 on: January 19, 2016, 12:48:26 »

I am currently researching the Kingdom of Kent during the Anglo-Saxon heptarchy, especially the events leading up to the Battle of Otford in 776. Although Kent traditionally had two kings, at that time there was only one (Egbert the second) who would have ruled from Canterbury.

Is there any reference anywhere to a royal palace in Canterbury - my research so far has not been successful. I am trying to get a picture of the kind of rulers they would have been, whether they operated from a central palace or were more mobile around the county and were out and about with the nobles.

Thanks in advance.
