Wigmund of Mercia

Wigmund may have briefly reigned in Mercia in about 840, in succession to his father, Wiglaf of Mercia. He may, on the other hand, have predeceased his father and never been anything more than a co-ruler with him. He was himself the father of Wigstan (Saint Wystan) who later declined kingship, he married Ælfflæd, daughter of Ceolwulf the I which leads people to believe that Ceolwulf the II was a descendant of Wigmund and the last of the original Mercian dynasty which migrated to Mercia in the 6th Century.
