|Creoda of Wessex|
|King of Wessex (disputed)|
Creoda of Wessex (? died 534) is a shadowy figure in early Wessex history whose existence is disputed, mentioned only in the Genealogical Regnal List that serves as preface to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. There he is stated to have been the son of Cerdic and father to Cynric. However, the body of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle omits any mention of Creoda and describes Cynric as the son of Cerdic. He may have ruled Wessex for a short period of time immediately after Cerdic's death, but is usually dismissed as an interpolation into the authentic royal line.
