- ↑ Cawley (Medieval Lands) estimates his birth year as about 860, without mentioning the 15 Aug 866 date given in Wikipedia (which appears to be based on an article published in 1911). Aug 866 was shortly after his father's death, which would likely have drawn some attention if it was recorded in contemporary sources.
