(Daughter of Offa 7; wife of King Beorhtric 1 of Wessex) : Having received the friendship of Beorhtric 1 and power over almost all the kingdom, Eadburg 5 began to live in a tyrannical way like her father (Offa 7). She accused all she could to the king (Beorhtric 1) and through trickery deprived them of their life or their power. If she could not accomplish that through the king (Beorhtric 1), she poisoned them. She was known to have poisoned a young man (Anonymous 3) dear to Beorhtric 1. This poison destined for the other Beorhtric 1 swallowed unawares; thereby both died.
