Events[edit]

By place[edit]

Europe[edit]

  • Northumbrians and East Angles swear allegiance to Alfred the Great, but promptly break their truce by attacking the south-west of England.
  • Battle of Benfleet: The Saxons defeat the Vikings in England (probable date).
  • Mojmír II becomes King of Great Moravia after the death of his father Svatopluk I.
  • A Byzantine-Hungarian alliance forces Bulgar invaders to agree to a peace settlement. The Byzantines then break the peace settlement with the Hungarians and realign with the Bulgars; this substantially weakens both the Hungarians and Bulgars to the Byzantines' benefit.
  • Serbian ruler Petar defeats his revolting cousin Bran.
