Saxon king, possibly of Wessex in modern England. Married, and the father of Saint Willibald, Saint Winebald, and Saint Walburga. At least two disparate biographies exist for him, neither of them very creditable. Died suddenly during a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy.
- 722 at Lucca, Italy of natural causes
- buried in the church of San Frediano in Lucca
- miracles reported at his tomb
- some relics translated to Eichstätt, Germany
- pilgrim in an ermine-lined cloak (wears a crown, or it sits on a book nearby) with a bishop and an abbot, his sons, nearby
