This Sigiberht "the Small" presumably succeeded to the East Anglian kingdom some time after the deaths of the three sons of Sæberht in about 616 ; if there were other intervening kings, their names have not survived.
The fact that Swithhelm received Christianity from a neighbouring king and not with the rest of the East Saxon nobility under Sigiberht may suggest that Swithhelm started his reign as a pagan, but it might equally be that he was in exile in East Anglia during Sigiberht's reign.
Since Oswiu of Northumbria ruled directly over part of Mercia in 655-8, and Æthelhere of East Anglia was acting as an ally of the Mercians in 655, it may be that Oswiu sent some of his ealdormen to rule over East Anglia for a time as well.
