Cadwaladr "Fendigard" (the Blessed) AP CADWALLON Last Pendragon

  • Born: Abt 633
  • Died: 682

   Another name for Cadwaladr was Catuvelladurus.

   General Notes:

He was struck down with an unspecified illness in 643. During his incapacity the Britons fell to warring amongst themselves. Due to the civil war and due no doubt to the consequent neglect and destruction of the crops, the country was ravaged by a long-remembered famine that was followed by the plague. He sought refuge from the civil war in Brittany with King Alain II between 643 and 645.


According to the Annales Cambriae, he died of plague in 682. The earlier Historia Brittonum suggest he was the victim of an earlier plague, in 663/664, but such an early death would seem to extend the reign of his successor, Idwal to an improbable length.
