Eadric (died August 686?) was a King of Kent (685 - 686). He was the son of Ecgberht I.

Eadric was for a time co-ruler alongside his uncle Hlothhere, and a code of laws issued in both their names has survived. However, Eadric eventually revolted and defeated Hlothhere with the aid of the South Saxons. Hlothhere died of wounds received in battle on February 6, 685, and Eadric became sole ruler. It was not long, however, before Kent faced the overwhelming invasion of the West Saxonsmarker under Caedwalla. Eadric was still reigning in June 686 [55562]. A Frankish annal records his death on 31 August 687.
