Sigeberht the Little was king of Essex from 617 to 653.[1] He was the son of Saeward, who was slain in battle against forces from Wessex. Sigeberht was considered a pagan and most likely allied with Penda of Mercia in 635, who was also a pagan.[2]

After his death, he was succeeded by his relative Sigeberht the Good.
