About Cyngen ap Cadell

Cyngen ap Cadell (died 855) was a king of Powys in eastern Wales.

Cyngen was of the line of Brochwel Ysgithrog and after a long reign as king of Powys went on a pilgrimage to Rome and died there in 855. He is thought to be the first Welsh ruler to visit Rome after the healing of the breach between the Welsh branch of the Celtic Church and Rome over the date of Easter.

Cyngen raised a pillar in memory of his great-grandfather Elisedd ap Gwylog which stands near the later abbey of Valle Crucis. This memorial is known as the Pillar of Eliseg owing to a mistake by the original carver of the inscription.

Cyngen was the last of the original line of kings of Powys. He had three sons, but on his death Powys was annexed by Rhodri Mawr, ruler of Gwynedd who claimed it as the son of Cyngen's sister, Nest ferch Cadell.

Cyngen had the following children:

   * Elisedd ap Cyngen
   * Ieuaf ap Cyngen
   * Aeddan ap Cyngen
   * Gruffudd ap Cyngen

Cyngen erected a column in his great-grandfather's memory which stands not far from the later abbey of Valle Crucis. This is known as the Pillar of Eliseg, but the form Eliseg which appears on the column is thought to be a mistake by the carver of the inscription.

The Latin inscription on the pillar is now very hard to read, but was apparently clearer in the time of Edward Lhuyd who transcribed it. The translation of the part of the inscription referring to Elisedd is as follows:

+ Concenn son of Catell, Catell son of Brochmail, Brochmail son of Eliseg, Eliseg son of Guoillauc.

+ And that Concenn, great-grandson of Eliseg, erected this stone for his great-grandfather Eliseg.

+ The same Eliseg, who joined together the inheritance of Powys . . . out of the power of the Angles with his sword and with fire.

+ Whosoever repeats the writing, let him give a blessing on the soul of Eliseg.
