Hering son of Hussa


Hering son of Hussa

Hering, son of Hussa (late 6th century-early 7th century) was a Bernician prince. He was the son of Hussa, king of Bernicia from 585 to 592/593. After Hussa's death the kingdom went to Æthelfrith, Hering's cousin. Sometime during the first half of Æthelfrith's reign Hering fled to Dál Riata where he was given refuge by their king Áedán mac Gabráin.

In 603 Hering led a part of a Dalriadan army to attack Bernicia, but was defeated at Degsastan by Æthelfrith; the "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" (manuscript E, year 603) mentions Hering's participation, although Bede does not. Hering's ultimate fate is unknown.
