[27397] Rhodri Mawr ('the Great') (c 877), king of Gwynedd, Powys, and Deheubarth; son of Merfyn Frych by Nest, daughter of Cadell ap Brochwel of Powys. He succeeded his father as king of Gwynedd in 844. In 855, on the death of his uncle, Cyngen, he became king of Powys, and in 872, when Gwgon, king of Seisyllwg (Ceredigion and Ystrad Tywi) and brother to his wife, Angharad, died, the southern realm came under his rule. There was thus created for the first time a loose union of at least three major Welsh provinces, and though dissolved at Rhodri's death, this temporary association gave birth to an aspiration which coloured the outlook of successive generations of Rhodri's descendants as rulers of Deheubarth or Gwynedd down to the loss of Welsh independence. In his life-time Wales was gravely menaced by the Danes, and evicence exists pointing to bold and vigorous leadership during this crisis. It would appear that he died in battle against the Saxons, leaving six sons of whom two became founders of medieval dynasties, Anarawd of the house of Aberffraw, and Cadell, father of Hywel Dda, of the house of Dinefwr. [Dictionary of Welsh Biography p837]


Rhodri Mawr, i.e. the Great (d 877), Welsh king, was the son of Merfyn Frych, on whose death in 844 he became ruler of North Wales. According to Jesus Coll MS 20, he was the son of Nest, heiress of Powys, and grandson of 'Ethellt,' heiress of Gwynedd; later authorities reverse the two names. By his marriage to Angharad, daughter of Meurig ap Dyfnwallon, he became, on the death (in 871) of Gwgon, her brother, ruler of Ceredigion and Ystrad Tywi also' his realm then extended from Anglesey to Gower, though hemmed in on the west by Dyfed (extending from St David's to Carmarthen), and on the east by principalities occupying the modern Radnorshire, Brecknockshire, and Glamorganshire. It was probably against Rhodri, who was an active and energetic prince, that Burhred of Mercia in 853 sought the help of his overlord Ethelwulf; the West-Saxon king led an expedition into Wales, which for a time re-established the Mercian supremecy. But Rhodri was chiefly occupied in withstanding the incursions of the Danes, who, with the 'Dubh Gaill,' or 'gentiles nigri' of the Manevian annals, appeared in the Irish Sea from about 850, and began to press hardly on Wales. Irish chronicles tell how he slew a Danish leader 'Horm' in 855; in 876 he suffered a reverse, probably the 'battle in Anglesey on a Sunday' recorded under that year in 'Annales Cambrim,' which compelled him to flee to Ireland. In the following year both he and his son (or brother?) Gwriad were slain by the English, a blow so keenly felt by his subjects that a vitory over the English won on the banks of the Conway three years later came to be known as 'God's vengence for Rhodri.'


According to Asser, Rhodri left six sons, of whom he mentions Anarawd as the leader. Two others, Cadell and Merfyn, are named by early authorities; as to the other three is some discrepancy. A tradition, of the existence of which in the time of Giraldus Cambrensis there is evidence, asserts that on their father's death, Anarawd, Cadell, and Merfyn divided his dominions among them, taking Gwynedd, South Wales, and Powys respectively. It is certain that Anarawd and Cadell founded the royal houses of Gwynedd and Deheubarth; Merfyn appears to have transmitted no princely claims, and his possession of Powys is unattested. In later times the story ran that Rhodri himself made the partition, assigning a royal court to each of the three sons, and arranging for the supremacy of the eldest over the other two. A document in the Iolo MSS adds the provision made by Rhodri for the settlement of disputes between two of the three princes. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries there was much debate among the atiquaries of Wales as to whether Anarawd or Cadel was the eldest and therefore the privileged son, North and South Wales being at issue upon the matter. A full discussion of the topic from the northern point of view may be found in Vaughan of Hengwrt's 'British Antiquities Revived.' [Dictionary of National Biography XVI:971]

Ruled Gwynedd 844-878

According to legend, the first Dinefwr Castle (right) was built by Rhodri Mawr - King of Wales in the 9th century. It is unavoidable that attention should focus on those Welsh rulers who extended their power over much of Wales in the centuries prior to the Norman conquest. They foreshadowed the attempts by the princes of Gwynedd in the 13th century to create a unified Welsh state, and they matched contemporary developments in England, and similar, but later, developments in Scotland. So, Rhodri Mawr (844-78) is presented as one who set a pattern for the future. He either ruled or, by his personal qualities, dominated much of Wales.

Chroniclers of his generation hailed Rhodri ap Merfyn as Rhodri Mawr (Rhodri the Great), a distinction bestowed upon two other rulers in the same century - Charles the Great (Charlemagne, died 814) and Alfred the Great (died 899). The three tributes are of a similar nature - recognition of the achievements of men who contributed significantly to the growth of statehood among the nations of the Welsh, the Franks and the English. Unfortunately, the entire evidence relating to the life of Rhodri consists of a few sentences; yet he must have made a deep impression upon the Welsh, for in later centuries being of the line of Rhodri was a primary qualification for their rulers. Until his death, Rhodri was acknowledged as ruler of more than half of Wales, and that as much by diplomacy as by conquest. Rhodri's fame sprang from his success as a warrior. That success was noted by The Ulster Chronicle and by Sedulius Scottus, an Irish scholar at the court of the Emperor Charles the Bald at Liege. It was his victory over the Vikings in 856 which brought him international acclaim. Wales was less richly provided with fertile land and with the navigable rivers that attracted the Vikings, and the Welsh kings had considerable success in resisting them. Anglesey bore the brunt of the attacks, and it was there in 856 that Rhodri won his great victory over Horn, the leader of the Danes, much to the delight of the Irish and the Franks.

It was not only from the west that the kingdom of Rhodri was threatened. By becoming the ruler of Powys, his mother's land, he inherited the old struggle with the kingdom of Mercia. Although Offa's Dyke had been constructed in order to define the territories of the Welsh and the English, this did not prevent the successors of Offa from attacking Wales. The pressure on Powys continued; after 855, Rhodri was its defender, and he and his son, Gwriad, were killed in battle against the English in 878. [www.castlewales.com/rhodri.html]

______________________________________

Just as Egbert, King of the West Saxons and later of Kent, is the first ruler to be styled King of the Angles or English people in 829-30, so Rhodri Mawr, (Rhodri the Great, 820-78) is remembered as the first to claim the title of king of the Welsh. He was the first to unite most of Wales under his rule, 844-78. Professor Davies points out that the title "great" was bestowed upon only two other rulers in the same century: Charlemagne (Charles the Great) and Alfred the Great. All three contributed greatly to the growth of statehood among their respective nations. Rhodri, son of Merfyn Frych, became King of Gwynedd in 844, following the death of his father; of Powys following the death of his uncle in 855; and of Seisyllwg (including Ceredigion and Ystrad Tywi) following the death of his brother-in-law in 872. He was most successful in keeping out the Danes and the English from settling his territories. By uniting the three principal kingdoms of Wales under his rule, Rhodri showed that an independent Wales could exist that need not be subservient to the rule of English monarchs. Gwynfor Evans cites Nora Chadwick, calling Rhodri "the greatest of all the kings of Wales." His success was mainly due to his creation of a consciousness in the Welsh-speaking people of Britain that they could act together as one. Gwynfor Evans also laments the fact that this great king had no biographer to properly record his achievements, unlike Alfred of Wessex, who had a biographer Asser, a Welshman from St. David's. Rhodri was killed in 878 fighting against the English of Mercia. [www.britannia.com - The Welsh Rulers of Britain] ________________________________________

Upon the death of his father in 844 he became King of Gwynedd. When his uncle, Cyngen, died in 855 he became King of Powys. When his wife Angharad's brother, Gwgon, died in 871 he also became ruler of Seisyllwg. By the time of his death in 877, he ruled over all of Wales with the exception of the southeastern and southwester extremities. Rhodri was a pivotal person in Welsh history. In future centuries, one of the main requirements for kingship in the Welsh kingdoms was being of the descent of Rhodri Mawr. Rhodri's fame spran from his success as a warrior. It was his victory over the Viking, Horn, leader of the Danes, in 856 which brought him international acclaim. The Irish and the Franks had been unsuccessfully trying to repel the Northmen and they were impressed by Rhodri's success. The English kingdom of Wessex had for many years been striving with partial success to subjugate Powys. It was in battle against the English that Rhodri, along with his son, Gwriad, was killed in 877. It appears that the Welsh court experienced a cutural revival during the reigh of Rhodri.
