Regents of East Anglia

East Anglia was the most easterly of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms (see map on this page). It is most likely the kings of  East Anglia's who are buried in the two ship burial fields in Sutton Hoo from the sixth century and the beginning of the seventh century. These are exactly the same type of graves found in Vendel and Valsgärde in Sweden and they are a testimony of a connection between the kings of East Anglia and Sweden. At the end of the ninth century East Anglia was conquered by Danish Vikings, who later lost it to Wessex when this kingdom unified England. Thereafter East Anglia was an earldom until the Norman conquest 1066.
