Persona History

~~ Secca of Kent is an 8thC Saxon, currently in the service of Offa of Mercia. His forebears were Jutes who settled in Kent near Cantawaraberg (Canterbury) about 200 years ago. As the second son of a wealthy landowner, a King's Thegn, he found employ in the Court of Æthelbald of Mercia. It is recorded that Æthelbald was a poor ruler and not liked. It is further known that he was treacherously murdered by his own bodyguards in 757. The site of this event is the town known as Seckington, Warwickshire -- which was called Seccandun in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, or Secca's Town. Secca denies any allegations of involvement in Aethelbald's death -- nor in the subsequent defeat and banishment of Beornred -- nor the following consolidation of power, by Offa of Mercia, of the territories of Kent, Sussex, Essex, Wessex, and East Anglia.

~~ Secca was formerly regestered as Secca de Cantia; and before that called Secca of Venice, Secca Guðfloga, and Antonio lo Seccante della Rovere.
