(King of the West Saxons, 757-786) : When the king [sc. Cynewulf 4] perceived what the situation was, he leapt to the door and defended himself against the weapons. Having made up his mind, Cynewulf 4 rushed at the prince [sc. Cyneheard 3], on whom he inflicted considerable wounds, but the latter's companions (Anonymi 2444), not forgetting their threats, raised up their weapons and cut down the king [sc. Cynewulf 4].
