    When did Mercia replace Northumbria as the strongest Anglo-Saxon kingdom?

    Was it the reign of Penda? Perhaps the reign of Athelbald in the early 8th C.? Also, what factors played in this replacement? Did Mercia just defeat the Northumbrians or did other kingdoms/reasons play a part?

    Well, the Spanish Government handled the whole Catalonian thing badly. Rather than attacking people with clubs and rubber bullets, the should have gone after ONE person.
