Enbald II, Archbishop of York
(Died c.AD 808)

Enbald II, a favourite pupil of Alcuin, was consecrated the successor of his namesake in the Archiepiscopal See of York on 14th August AD 796. Alcuin himself would, no doubt, have been elected, had he chosen to return to Northumbria. He did, however, write frequently to the new Archbishop, laying down many rules for the direction of his province. Alcuin sent to York, amongst other gifts, a ship load of metal (stagnum) for the roofing of the bell tower at York Minster.

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