The version of the 12th century "Brut y Tywysogion" (Chronicle of the Princes of Wales), published with English translation in the Rolls Series in 1860 by John Williams, was incorporated into the Red Book of Hergest, a manuscript compilation of numerous 6th to 15th century literary works written in the Welsh language.The so-called "Gwentian Chronicle" represents another version of the Chronicle of the Princes/Brut y Tywysogion, allegedly arranged by Caradoc of Llancarvan, with major differences in the text and particular emphasis on southern Wales.Some of the areas of difficulty which he highlights are discussed below in the present document.Dating of early medieval Welsh history is a particular problem as the three main sources referred to above rarely coincide in the dates which they attribute to the events recorded. [The Gwentian Chronicle records that "Gwgan son of Morydd son of Llywarch Llwyd, king of Ceredigion was drowned in crossing the river Llychwr in Gower, to drive the black pagans out of that country" in 870.continues along the same ground it always has: It's extremely well-constructed, with slow-burning storylines that are paying off in superb dramatic depth; it boasts consistently top-tier acting from stars Keri Russell, Mathew Rhys, Noah Emmerich, Holly Taylor and more; and it has artfully crafted visuals that emphasize the mundane work of everyday spies while simultaneously revealing things about the characters." Read on to learn more about the actors and actresses who make up the award winning show.The main Welsh primary sources so far consulted in the preparation of the present document are the Annales Cambri, the Chronicle of the Princes/Brut y Tywysogion, and the so-called "Gwentian Chronicle".If Elisse was the son of Cynan, he must have predeceased his father whose daughter is recorded as his heir (see below).] c) (-after [814/16]).While the surviving sources are consistent regarding the parentage of Ethyll, they are contradictory regarding the identity of her husband.
[The Gwentian Chronicle records that "[the] daughter [of Cynan Tindaethwy king of all Wales] who was his heir married a chieftain of the name of Mervyn the Freckled", a later passage adding that "Mervyn the Freckled and Essyllt his wife began to reign over Gwynedd and Powys" in 818.] As noted above, the Gwentian Chronicle records that Ethyll married Gwriads son Merfyn "Frych/the Freckled".The Gwentian Chronicle records that "Rhodri Molwynawc" died in 750 after reigning for 30 years and "was buried at Caerleon on the Uskthe last of the race of the kings of the island of Britain who was buried there". [The Gwentian Chronicle records that "the kingdom of Mona and the kingdom of Dyved [were] impoverished on account of the war between Hywel Vychan and his brother Cynan, in which Hywel conquered Mona" in 810 (-[816/17]). [The Gwentian Chronicle records that "the kingdom of Mona and the kingdom of Dyved [were] impoverished on account of the war between Hywel Vychan and his brother Cynan, in which Hywel conquered Mona" in 810.The wide elapse of time suggests that the king whose death is reported in 814 could not have been the same person as the one whose accession is reported in 754, or else the earlier report is misdated.] 4. The same source records the succession of "Cynan Tindaethwy" in 754.Numerous extracts from these works have been incorporated, although it has proved difficult to identify all Welsh persons who are named, particularly for the later years.The Annales Cambri, said to have been compiled originally in 954, represents the oldest register of events in Wales.
