About Ceredig ap Cunedda, Brenin Ceredigion

Ceredig was born in his father Cunedda’s original homeland of Manau Gododdin around the Upper Firth of Forth. When called upon to expel Irish invaders from North Wales in the early 5th century, he travelled south, with the rest of his family. He fought bravely against the advancing Gaels and his father rewarded him with the most southern area of his new kingdom, bordering on Dyfed, possibly including part of the Cantref Gwaelod. The region became so associated with Ceredig that the people named it Ceredigion after him.

Cardiganshire is a county of South Wales. Encyclop. Britannica: "In the post-Roman days the whole basin of the Teifi is

said to have fallen to the power of Ceredig, son of Cunedda Wledig of north Wales, and from Ceredig's name has been

derived that of the present county." ('56 Ed., 4:853)

Ceredig

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ceredig ap Cunedda, (424 - 453 AD), king of Ceredigion,[1] may have been born c. 420 AD in the Brythonic kingdom of Manaw Gododdin (modern Lothian in Scotland), centred on the Firth of Forth in the area known as Yr Hen Ogledd. Little is known of him. One of the sons of Cunedda, grandfather of Saint David,[2] according to tradition, he arrived in what is now modern Wales from Gododdin with his father's family when they were invited to help ward off Irish invaders. As a reward for his bravery, his father gave him the southernmost part of the territories in north-west Wales reconquered from the Irish. The realm came to be called Ceredigion after him.

Ceredigion

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The name Ceredigion means Land of Ceredig, who was a son of Cunedda, a chieftain who re-conquered much of Wales from the Irish around the 5th century. It remained a kingdom ruled by his descendants until it expanded and changed its name, first to Seisyllwg in the late 7th century, and after the union of Seisyllwg with Dyfed it was incorporated into Deheubarth in the mid 10th century.

In 1282 Edward I of England conquered the principality of Wales and divided the area into counties. The name Cardigan was an Anglicization of the name for the historic kingdom of Ceredigion.

Ceredig Ceredigion,

King of Ceredigion

(Born c.AD 420)

(Latin: Caratacus; English: Caractacus)

Ceredig was born in his father Cunedda Wledig's original homeland of Manau Gododdin around the Upper Firth of Forth. When called upon to expel Irish invaders from North Wales in the early 5th century, he travelled south, with the rest of his family. He fought bravely against the advancing Gaels and his father rewarded him with the most southern area of his new kingdom, bordering on Dyfed, possibly including part of the Cantref Gwaelod. Here, he became a great patron of his brother-in-law, St. Curig. The region became so associated with Ceredig that the people named it Ceredigion after him. In his old age, the kingdom was attacked once more by the Irish and he was persuaded by his counsellors to abdicate in favour of a younger man. However, his heir, his eldest grandson, Carannog, declined the offer of the Crown in order to become a hermit. Instead the people of Ceredigion had to look to Ceredig's second son, Usai. -------------------- Ceredig ap Cunedda, (424 - 453 AD), king of Ceredigion, may have been born c. 420 AD in the Brythonic kingdom of Manaw Gododdin (modern Lothian in Scotland), centred on the Firth of Forth in the area known as Yr Hen Ogledd.
