Another name for Cadeyrn was Catigern.
Catigern was the son of the 5th century British warlord, Vortigern. He is said to have been the first King of Powys.
Little is known of his exploits and he may have been conflated with another figure named Cadell. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and Nennius' Historia Brittonum, Catigern was killed in a battle with the Saxons, along with their leader Horsa at the Battle of Aylesford in Kent around 455 AD.
The nearby Neolithic chamber tomb of Kit's Coty House is his burial place in local legend.
He met St. Germanus probably during his first visit to Britain receiving his blessing in 429.
He was a warrior king who led the British troops at the Battle of Rithergabail in 447 in Aylesford, Kent, England.
