ETHELBERT (Saint) King, Martyr (May 20) (8th century) A King of East Anglia, who, invited by King Offa to come to his Court to marry his daughter, was by that monarch’s orders treacherously and cruelly put to death (A.D. 793). Numerous miracles justified popular devotion in regarding him as a Martyr, and the place where his relics were entombed was a little later made a Bishop’s See, that of Hereford.
