The two Ewalds died in the late seventh century. The Danes under Ivar the Boneless occupied Northumbria in the mid-ninth century. Danes who earlier came to England were themselves Angles from Schleswig in southern Denmark, who in turn came from central European Germanic lands.
In old English, the Angles became Engle and gave their name to Englisc. The possessive form of Engle, Engla, gave rise to Engle land, the country that they occupied with the Saxons and Jutes, also Germanic invaders. This speaks for itself.
I never said that the Franks weren't in the north already, where they ruled the Romanized Celts.
As usual, Setanta makes irrelevant and erroneous comments, without comprehension of either the material he is replying to or of the material he parrots while attempting to sound educated, covering up his insecurity and manifold faults with fatuous ad hominem substituting for confidence.
I reply this time only because I didn't remember to log in to check messages and thus my ignore list wasn't activated.
Stop wasting my time with your frivolous mockery, Setanta. Stop hijacking my threads with your foolish, non-responsive, and personally insulting nonsense. I don't intend to put up with you and I will take whatever steps are needed to muzzle you, since you are a troll, not a legitimate participant. This is absolutely the last reply to you I intend to make -- here.
