Enbald I, Archbishop of York
(Died AD 796)

Enbald was elected Archbishop of York very early in AD 780. He was destined to witness the first attacks of the heathen Danes on Northumbria. The country was so widely ravaged, and was in such entire disorder, that, in AD 790, the great Yorkist scholar, Alcuin, deserted the city for the Frankish Court of the Emperor Charlemagne. Enbald died on 10th August AD 796 at the monastery of Etlete or Edete - the location of which is unknown.

Edited from Richard John King's "Handbook to the Cathedrals of England: Northern Division" (1903).
