Egbert believed the demons who inhabited his realm were no more than monsters whose violent nature degraded the spirit of his populace. Of particular concern was their past queen, Britt. Egbert had sent a small band of soldiers to dispatch of her, confidant that his decision would be of benefit to the greater good. It did no matter how they spoke of him: Egbert would do what was necessary to save those in need of saving, even if that meant murdering the supposedly innocent.
Egbert is an English and German masculine name of Old English origin; the meaning is "bright sword, bright edge, famous swordsman". It is a two-element name derived from the words ecg "edge of a sword" and beorht "bright, famous". Anglo-Saxon variant spellings include Ecgberht and Ecgbert. German variant spellings include Ekbert and Ecbert. This was the name of kings of Kent and Wessex as well as two English saints. The name was rarely used after the Norman conquest but was revived in the 19th century.
