Oswald 6 (Male) Son of King Æthelred 15 of Wessex, fl. 863-875
l ix

Notes: Oswald is called 'filius regis' in a charter of King Alfred 8, 875 (S1203). There is, however, no suggestion elsewhere that Alfred had a son by this name and it seems highly likely that the 'rex' to whom Osfrith's style refers is actually Æthelred 15, Alfred's predecessor and brother, making Oswald 6, Alfred's nephew. That he does not appear in Alfred's will (S1507) may suggest that he was dead by the time it was made.
