Facts and Events
The only source for Eaba's existence is the (probably late 9th century) West Saxon genealogy, whose reliability is unknown. According to Stewart Baldwin, no dates or places are known for Eaba's life. The dates and places on this page (and most of the associated pages) are presumably someone's guesses posing as facts.
