Swæfheard was a king of Kent, reigning jointly with Oswine, Wihtred, and possibly Swæfberht.

Swæfheard’s charter [1] dated 1 March 689, in the second year of his reign, identifies his father as Sæbbi, King of Essex (ac consensu patris mei Sebbe regis). He witnessed two charters of Oswine [2][3], one of which is dated 27 January 690. He was still reigning jointly with Withred in July 692, according to Bede.
