The Hengistid dynasty - also known as Hengistling (Etrandish: Hengistling ; IPA: [hɛnd͡ʒɪstlɪŋ], meaning "Hengist-descendants") or Hengisten (Etrandish: Hengisten ; IPA: [hɛnd͡ʒɪstɛn], meaning "of Hengist") - was the ruling family of Etrand between 71 and 145 AEKE.

Even though the main line of the Hengistlings died out in 145 AEKE with the death of Sighard, a cadet branch of the family descended from Osric the Usurper, House Osriking still survives. and continues to hold the Margraviate of Steelhelm.
