From the destruction of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria by the Vikings in 867 to the early eleventh century, Bamburgh and the surrounding region (the former Bernicia), the northern part of Northumbria, was ruled for a short period by shadowy kings, then by a series of ealdormen (Latin duces, Old English eorl, modern English earl) and high-reeves (from Old English heah-gerefa). Several of these men ruled all Northumbria.
