  Bernicia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bernicia (Brythonic, "Brynaich" or "Bryneich") was a kingdom of the Angles in northern England during the 6th and 7th centuries AD.
Aethelfrith, king of Bernicia, united Deira with his own kingdom around the year 604 and ruled the two kingdoms (united as the kingdom of Northumbria) until he was defeated and killed by Raedwald of East Anglia (who had given refuge to Edwin, son of Aella, king of Deira) around the year 616.
Bernicia was then briefly ruled by Eanfrith, son of Aethelfrith, but after about a year he went to Cadwallon to sue for peace and was killed.

 Bernicia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Bernicia was a kingdom in England during the 6th century AD.
Aethelfrith, king of Bernicia, united Deira to his own kingdom, probably about 605, and the union continued under his successor Edwin, son of Ælla or Ella, king of Deira.
Bernicia was again separate from Deira under Eanfrith, son of Aethelfrith (633—634), after which date the kings of Bernicia were supreme in Northumbria, though for a short time under Oswiu Deira had a king of its own.

Bernicia remained largely Anglo-Saxon and continued to speak the Anglian language with some Viking influence drifting in from the south and later the west.
Bernicia must have especially welcomed Athelstan's kingship of England, but the kingdoms of the far north were not so appreciative.

 The Heroic Age: Politics of Exile in Early Northumbria   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
This is all consistent with the sons of Hussa and their retainers fleeing Bernicia on Æthelfrith's accession in 592 (Moisl 1983:114).
Bernicia was clearly in the orbit of the northern kings and it was to the North rather than to the southern Angles that the æthelings turned in their exile.
Bernicia was therefore comfortably nestled in a Celtic world and was more at home with at least the Scots and Picts rather than with the more ethnically similar southern Angles or Saxons.

 Anglo Saxon Royalty
Oswiu cemented what was becoming increasingly accepted in the union of Deira with Bernicia to create a single kingdom of the Angles north of the Humber, known, as with most Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, by it's geographical location in relation to the other early English kingdoms - Northumbria.
On his father's death in 588, he fled before Æthelric of Bernicia, conqueror of Deira, to Ceorl of Mercia, and subsequently sought asylum with Redwald, king of East Anglia, in 617.
Redwald defeated and killed Æthelfrith, in 617, and Edwin succeeded Æthelfrith as king of Deira, and, annexing Bernicia and neighbouring territory, formed the united Northumbrian kingdom and extended his power in all directions, becoming overlord of the whole of England except Kent.

 The Heroic Age: Oswald and the Irish
The relationship between Oswald of Bernicia and the Irish kingdom of Dalriada (Dál Riata) is of critical importance to the understanding of his reign, and, indeed, to the history of seventh century Britain.
On his death in the spring or summer of 635 (Higham 1997:206), Oswald was elected king of Bernicia and given the responsibility of attacking Cadwallon [11].
North (1997: 339-340) suggests that the cult of the war god was strong in Bernicia based on Æthelfrith's actions and the frequency of the Os- name element in the family.

Bernicia became the center of a struggle that pit the King of the Scots and English in a fight for lordship of the area.

The apparent peace between Dalriada and Bernicia after 603, and Dalriada's acceptance of Æthelfrith's exiled sons in 616 suggest that the Scots came to terms with Æthelfrith after the battle at Degsastan even if Aedan did not remain on the throne of Dalriada for long after the battle.
Both traditions were written after the confusion between Æthelric King of Bernicia 568-572 and Æthelric King of Deira 599-604 that led the authors to make Edwin a young child in Cadfan's court.
It is possible that Ælfwine son of Oswiu became king of Deira in 670 at the age of nine when his brother Ecgfrith became king of Bernicia and overking of Deira (i.e.

Bernicia, the name given to the part of Northumbria north of the Tees (the Tees to Firth of Forth area) had very little Viking settlement of any kind.
Bernicia also included what is now the Scottish Borders region and the Scottish Lothians - these regions were not part of Scotland at the time of the Viking settlement.
The Earls of Bernicia like Oswulf, were the descendants of the old Angle Kings of Northumrbia and resented the subordination of their region to the Viking kings based in York.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: St. Oswald
Oswald's mother was Acha, daughter of Ella or Alla, who, after Ida's death, had seized Deira and thus separated it from the Northern Bernicia.
Here, encouraged by a vision and promise of victory from St. Columba, who shrouded with his mantle all his camp, Oswald set up a cross of wood as his standard -- the first Christian symbol ever raised in Bernicia -- and gave battle to the Britons, who were led, probably, by Cadwalla.
Oswald's victory reunited the Northumbrian Kingdom not only because he delivered it from the humiliating yoke of the Mercians and Britons, but also because on his father's side he was a descendant of Ida of Bernicia and on his mother's of the royal house of Ella of Deira.
