Alric of Kent

Alric (Old English: Alrīc; 8th century) was a king of the Saxon kingdom of Kent, jointly with Æðelberht II and Eadberht I.

Alric acceded with his two brothers on the death of his father Wihtred, according to Bede,[1] but is otherwise unknown. Kelly [2] observed that the reign of 762 to 796 attributed to him by William of Malmesbury “is evidently fantasy, inspired by a desire to account neatly for all the brothers mentioned by Bede”.
