In Kent, Eadric was for a time co-ruler alongside his uncle Hlothhere with a law code being issued in their names. Ultimately, Eadric revolted against his uncle and with help from Æthelwealh of Sussex he raised a South Saxon army in about 685 and was able to kill Hlothhere in battle, and replace him as ruler of Kent. The following year a West Saxon warband invaded Sussex under the command of the West Saxon prince Caedwalla and killed Æthelwealh. Caedwalla was subsequently driven out of Sussex by two of Æthelwealh's ealdormen, Berhthun and Andhun.William of Malmesbury suggests that Eadric became king of the South Saxon kingdom at that time. However in 686, Cædwalla, now king of Wesssex, and his brother Mul, removed Eadric from power and made Mul king of Kent. There is a discussion on the actual date of Eadric's death. Bede lists his death, but does not provide a precise date, however one of the Kent annals, suggest that he was buried on 31 August 686 and another 31 August 687. (en)
