Successor Cynegils
Full name
Ceolwulf of Wessex

Ceolwulf, a member of the House of Wessex, became King of Wessex in 597 upon the death of his brother Ceol, because at that time Ceol's son Cynegils was too young to rule.

Ceolwulf reigned for fourteen years and nothing is known of Wessex during his time as king.

He died without any recorded issue; after his death the throne passed to Cynegils.
