Ealhmund 4 (Male) King of Kent, fl. '784'
m/l viii

Notes: Placing Ealhmund is extremely difficult because the lone charter in which he appears derives from a cartulary with highly unreliable dates (Brooks, Canterbury, 113, 349 n.15). Perhaps the best that can be said for him is that he ruled sometime during Jænberht 1's archiepiscopacy (i.e. 765-792). It is likely that he was interloper from Wessex as he was the descendant of Cenred 1, father of Ine 1, and was himself father of King Ecgberht 10 of Wessex.
