The Kingdom of Sussex or Kingdom of the South Saxons (Old English: Sūþseaxna rīce) was one of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the boundaries of which coincided in general with those of the earlier kingdom of the Regnenses and the later county of Sussex. A large part of that district, however, was covered in early times by the Forest of Andred. It was ruled by the kings of Sussex.
