  EBK: Oswiu, King of Northumbria
Oswiu was a son of King Aethelfrith of Bernicia by his third wife of unknown name.
Oswiu's army was only a third the size and he, therefore, fled north to Stirling, his most northerly city.
Oswiu also tried to further extend his power northwards, by invading Pictland, in AD 663, a few years after the death of his Northumbrian-friendly nephew, King Talorcan I. However, there seems to be little support for Bede's claim that he made tributary the Dalriadan Scots.

 Bedes engelske Historie.
Selv om Bede vurderte Oswius regjeringstid som høydepunktet for Northumbrias maktstilling, uttrykte han langt mindre aktelse for Oswiu enn for Oswald.
Oswiu ble som kontrast betegnet som grusom, ondskapsfull, en bråkmaker, og den virkelige årsaken til at Oswine ble drept.
Dermed fikk herskeren i Northumbria innflytelse i Middle Anglia og makt til å ekspedere irske og engelske geistlige i dette området. Higham skriver at Peada ble døpt av Finan dypt inne i Bernicia etter initiativ fra en fyrste i Bernicia, og dette tyder på at Oswiu var seniorpartner i forholdet.
