list covers the Anglo-Saxons from the raids and settlement of the early
fifth century until the treaty of Alfred and Guthrum following Alfred’s
capture of London and subsequent reorganisation of the kingdom, army and
navy. The list might equally well be employed to represent continental
Saxons, Jutes or Frisians prior to their conquest by the Franks.
early fifth century Britain was invaded and settled by Germanic tribes
all of which came to be known as ‘Saxons’ to the native Britons. The
Saxons were the most important of a number of related invading tribes
that included Jutes, Angles, Frisians, and probably Franks not to
mention smaller and less powerful groups whose identities have been lost
to history. All of these are considered as Saxons and can be represented
by this list.
