Gwawr FERCH BRYCHAN 1
- Born: Brycheiniog, Breconshire, Wales
Many if not most secondary sources show Gwawr having been born c. 467. Others round her date of birth to either c.470 or c.480. Given her son Llywarch Hen is generally considered to have been born in the 540s, Gwawr would have been between 60 and 70 years of age when she gave birth to him, which seems highly unlikely.
Gwawr married Elidyr "Lydanwyn" AP MEIRCHION, son of Meirchion "Gul" AP GWRAST and Essylt FERCH CULWYNEDD. (Elidyr "Lydanwyn" AP MEIRCHION was born Est 520 in South Rheged, Wales and died in 590 in Powys, Montgomery, Wales.)
