This chapter focuses on the reign of Constantín son of Áed. It discusses his relations with his southern neighbours: with the fate of Northumbria and the ambitions of the West Saxon dynasty and the grandsons of Ímar. Constantín must have had diplomatic relations with his northern and western neighbours, and more complex relations with the Cumbrians of Strathclyde. He must surely have fought wars in the north and west. Unfortunately, surviving sources are extraordinarily silent on these matters.

Keywords:   Constantín, Northumbria, West Saxon dynasty, Ímar, Cumbrians, diplomatic relations
