St. Kenelm of Mercia
1. THE LEGEND
The earliest full record we possess of the life of St Kenelm comes from a manuscript copied in the twelfth century at Winchcombe Abbey, where the St Kenelm’s Way ends. The Saint is also referred to in regular chronicles, although these seem to have come from the same source as the Winchcombe manuscript, which itself claims to be derived from a Worcester monk named Wilfin. The story told by that manuscript is broadly this: The Legend of Saint Kenlem
Died c. 812-821. According to a popular legend of the Middle Ages, Kenelm was seven when his father, King Kenulf (Coenwulf) of Mercia, died, and he succeeded to the throne. His sister Quendreda (Cynefrith or Quoenthryth) bribed his tutor, Ascebert, to murder him in the forest of Clent so that she could claim the throne. Ascebert did, but when the body was discovered and enshrined at Winchcombe in Gloucestershire, all kinds of marvels occurred at his grave. All three are actual figures, but Kenelm did not die at seven and may even have died before his father. It is certain that he lived until his adolescence and may have been killed in battle (Attwater, Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia).
