Wessex, also known as the Kingdom of Wessex and the Kingdom of the West Saxons was an Anglo-Saxon kingdom in the south of Great Britain, from 519 until England was unified by Æthelstan in 927. The capital of the kingdom was Winchester, located in the county of Hampshire.

Under King Alfred the Great, Wessex fought against and defeated the invading Vikings from the north, laying the foundation of what became the Kingdom of England.[1]


The Kingdom of the West Saxons was comprised of four counties (shires) and one semi-autonomous city. Each county was led by an Ealdorman, who was appointed by the King.
