- Marriage: AEthelwulf King of England  about 830
- Died: 846
some sources show her dying in 955.
She is often confused with St. Osburga who founded Coventry Abbey.
Osburga's existence is known only from Asser <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asser>'s Life of King Alfred. She is not named as witness to any charters, nor is her death reported in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Saxon_Chronicle>. It is presumed, but nowhere recorded, that she was also the mother of Alfred's older brothers Ęthelstan of Wessex http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86thelstan_of_Wessex, Ęthelbald of Wessex <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86thelbald_of_Wessex>, Ęthelberht of Wessex <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86thelberht_of_Wessex>, Ęthelred of Wessex <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%86thelred_of_Wessex>, and of his sister Ęthelswith , wife of King Burgred of Mercia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burgred_of_Mercia>. The internal chronology of Asser's life suggests that Osburga was alive after the second marriage of Ęthelwulf, to the Carolingian <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolingian> princess Judith <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_of_Flanders>, in 856.
Osburga married AEthelwulf King of England  [MRIN: 1419], son of Ecgbert III of Wessex King of Wessex  and Redburga , about 830. (AEthelwulf King of England  was born in 795 in Aachen, Kaln, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, died on 13 Jan 858 in Stamridge, Wessex and was buried in Steyning Church, then the Old Minster, Winchester. Bones now in Winchester Cathedral.)
