Ceolwulf 5 (Male) I, king of the Mercians, 821-823; previously dux
l viii-e ix

Notes: Seems to have been a dux under his predecessor and propinquus, King Cenwulf 3, in whose charters he appears from c.814. The circumstances under which he was deprived of his position in 823 are obscure. It may be that a rival dynasty - with a penchant for names alliterating with B rather than C - seized power and placed Beornwulf 3 on the throne.
