Hlothhere

Hlothhere was a king of Kent who succeeded his brother Ecgberht in 673 and appears for a time to have reigned jointly with his nephew Eadric[?], son of Ecgberht, as a code of laws still extant was issued under both names. Neither is mentioned in the account of the invasion of Ælthelred in 676. In 685 Eadric[?], who seems to have quarrelled with Hlothhere, went into exile and led the South Saxons against him. Hlothhere was defeated and died of his wounds.
