The father of Gwrgan and grandfather of Iestyn ap Gwrgan ancestor of the ‘Royal Tribe’ of Morgannwg (ABT 15, MP 3 in EWGT pp.105, 122). He is mentioned in the Book of Llandaf as the father of Gwrgan (BLD 258, 263), but his father is not given. 2

Some pedigrees show Ithel as son of Idwallon son of Morgan...

"Idwallon the son of Morgan [ab Owain] is mentioned in the Book of Llandaf (BLD 245, 246, 252). In the first he is described as king. According to ABT 15, MP 3 (in EWGT pp.105, 122) he was father of Ithel and ancestor of Iestyn ap Gwrgant ab Ithel. In this way some kind of legitimacy in Morgannwg is claimed for Iestyn ap Gwrgan, ancestor of the 'Royal Tribe of Morgannwg'" 2
