Notes

HS, pp. 462-3, questionable; Levison 1946, p. 251, on names of Offa's daughters; John 1966, p. 52, on royal style; Gelling, ECTV, no. 315, spurious, names of Offa's family copied from a pre-Conquest source; Scharer 1982, pp. 270-1, fabrication perhaps based on a genuine charter of Offa; Cubitt 1995, pp. 271-2, forgery
