Today in Military History
15 November 655

The Kingdom of Northumbria defeats Mercia in the Battle of Winwaed. Penda of Mercia came to power during the age of the heptarchy in Anglo-Saxon Britain. In alliance with Cadwallon ap Cadfan, the King of Gwynedd, he was able to defeat the Northumbrians in the Battle of Hatfield Chase in 633. Nearly a decade later, he defeated the Northumbrians again in the Battle of Maserfield. These victories left Penda as one of the most powerful kings in Anglo-Saxon Britain. While many Anglo-Saxon kingdoms had begun adopting Christianity, Penda maintained the pagan faith in Mercia. In 655, conflict erupted again between Northumbria and Mercia. On 15 November 655, the two armies met at the River Winwaed (historians believe it may be the stream Cock Beck in West Yorkshire). The Mercians were defeated in the battle and Penda was killed. The battle marked the demise of Anglo-Saxon paganism in Britain and Mercia was converted to Christianity. See MoreSee Less
