  Wermund - LoveToKnow 1911
WERMUND, an ancestor of the Mercian royal family, a son of Wihtla g and father of Offa.

 Northvegr - Saxo's The History of the Danes
Wermund raised the sons of Frowin to honours of the same rank as their father's, a kindness which was only due to the children of his friend who had died for the country.
Wermund, declaring that he had performed his mission nobly and bravely, ordered that he should take some little refreshment of the banquet, since "far-faring ever hurt fasters." When Folk said that he had no kind of leisure to take food, he begged him to take a draught to quench his thirst.
Wermund rejoined that he should know that there were four kinds of warrior to be distinguished in every army.

 The Danish History/Book IV - Wikisource
Wermund, shaken by deep sighs, answered that it was too insolent to sting him with these taunts upon his years; for he had passed no timorous youth, nor shrunk from battle, that age should bring him to this extreme misery.
Wermund planted himself on the end of the bridge, determined to perish in the waters if defeat were the lot of his son: he would rather share the fall of his own flesh and blood than behold, with heart full of anguish, the destruction of his own country.
Wermund, thinking that his feebleness was at fault, that he took the blows so patiently, dragged himself little by little, in his longing for death, forward to the western edge of the bridge, meaning to fling himself down and perish, should all be over with his son.

 Wermund - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wermund or Garmund is an ancestor of the Mercian royal family, a son of Wihtlaeg and father of Offa.
Mythology claims him to be a grandson of Odin, but the Danish histories written by Saxo Grammaticus disagree with this concept.
As Eadgils was a contemporary of Ermanaric (also known as Eormenric), who died about 370, his date would agree with the indication given by the genealogies which place Wermund nine generations above Penda.

 Offa of Angel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His aged and blind father, King Wermund believed him to be a simpleton and in order to preserve his son's position as king had him marry the daughter of Freawine, a neighbouring warlord/king so that he would assist Offa when he became king.
However it did not come to pass as Freawin was killed by a marauding Viking warlord (apparently a Swede called Atisl).
Wermund subsequently raised Freawin's sons Ket and Wig as his own, however they would eventually cause great dishonour to the Angles when they ambushed Atisl in a forest as he walked alone and slew him.

King Alfred and the chronicler Æthelweard identified this place with the district which is now called Angel in the province of Schleswig (Slesvig), though it may then have been of greater extent, and this identification agrees very well with the indications given by Bede.
Full confirmation is afforded by English and Danish traditions relating to two kings named Wermund and Offa, from whom the Mercian royal family were descended, and whose exploits are connected with Angel, Schleswig and Rendsburg.
Danish tradition has preserved record of two governors of Schleswig, father and son, in their service, Frowinus (Freawine) and Wigo (Wig), from whom the royal family of Wessex claimed descent.
