  • A Viking fleet of 350 vessels enters the Thames Estuary before turning north and engages the Mercian forces under king Beorhtwulf. The Mercians are defeated and its remnants retreat to their settlements. The Vikings then turn south and cross the river somewhere in Surrey, there they are slaughtered by a West Saxon army led by king Æthelwulf and his son Aethelbald at Oak Field (Aclea).[7]
  • King Æthelstan, the eldest son of Æthelwulf, is killed by a Viking raiding party. He is succeeded by his brother Æthelberht who becomes sub-king of Kent, Essex, Surrey and Sussex (approximate date).
  • Beorhtwulf dies after a 12-year reign and is succeeded by his son Burgred as king of Mercia.
