Definition of BERNICIA
Anglian kingdom of 6th century a.d. located between Tyne & Forth rivers ∗ Bamborough
Ancient northern Anglo-Saxon kingdom. It stretched northward from perhaps as far south as the River Tees, ultimately reaching the Firth of Forth. By the end of the 7th century AD it had united with its neighbour Deira to form the kingdom of Northumbria. It had a royal residence at coastal Bamburgh. The first recorded king, Ida, was crowned there in 547; his grandson Aethelfrith (r. 593–616) united Bernicia and Deira.
