Cearl was an early king of Mercia who ruled during the early part of the 7th century, perhaps from about 606 to about 626.
Cearl was followed as king by Penda, son of Pybba, who was probably king by the year 633, but whether Penda came to power immediately after Cearl or after some intervening period is unknown.
That Cearl married his daughter to Edwin could be evidence that he and Penda were rivals, since Penda later fought against and defeated Edwin (in alliance with Cadwallon of Gwynedd).

 A History of Mercia
Mercia was an Anglo-Saxon kingdom founded by some of the Germanic tribe of the Angles (in their own tongue Engles) based in the Midlands of what is now England sometime in the 6th century.
The origins of Mercia are lost in the period of the Anglo-Saxon migrations to Great Britain from 420 CE to 600 CE.
Cearl is thought by some scholars to have died at the battle of Chester which took place around 616 CE, although there is no documented evidence of his death other than his disappearance from the historical record (Zaluckyj's Mercia: the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Central England, pages 26-27).
