Cadell "Ddyrnllwg" (of the Gleaming Hilt) AP CADEYRN King of Powys (447-460)

  • Married: Bef 468

   Another name for Cadell was Catullus filius Catigernus.

   General Notes:

He commanded the kingdom of Powys during his father Cadeyrn's battles in 441. He was driven from his father's kingdom by Irish pirates during the chaos of the Saxon insurrection in Southern Britain before 447. He hid himself amongst the peasants of Powys and became a servant of the Irish chieftain, Benlli, hoping, one day, to find an opportunity to retrieve his inheritance. He had his chance when St.Germanus of Auxerre visited Britain, probably for the second time, to combat the Pelagian heresy in 447. He was restored to the Powys throne by St. Germanus in 447.

   Marriage Information:

Cadell married St. Gwelfyl FERCH BRYCHAN Princess of Brycheiniog, daughter of St. Brychan AP ANLLACH Brenin Brycheiniog and Ribrwast (Prawst) FERCH GWRTHEYRN, before 468. (St. Gwelfyl FERCH BRYCHAN Princess of Brycheiniog was born about 438.)
