Kings of Sussex
A Pre-Conquest Listing

The Kings of Sussex remain obscure and few of their names are known. Some were independent; some were sub-Kings under the rule of Mercia or Wessex; others, it has been suggested, were only regional rulers, the Kingdom being divided into at least two divisions as it remains today.
