About Idwal Foel ab Anarawd

Idwal Foel ap Anarawd (Idwal the Bald) (died 942) was a King of Gwynedd, referred to as King of the Britons by William of Malmesbury, in whose Gesta Regum Anglorum his name is spelled Judwalum in the original Latin (anglicized Jothwel). In the Annales Cambriae, his name is spelled Iudgual.

Idwal inherited the throne of Gwynedd on the death of his father, Anarawd ap Rhodri in 916. He was obliged to acknowledge Athelstan of England as overlord. Following the death of Athelstan, Idwal and his brother Elisedd took to arms against the English, but both were killed in battle in 942. The rule of Gwynedd should now have passed to his sons, Iago ab Idwal and Idwal, usually called Ieuaf ab Idwal. However Hywel Dda, already ruler of most of south Wales, invaded Gwynedd and forced them into exile, adding Gwynedd to his realm. After Hywel's death in 950, Idwal's sons were able to claim the kingdom.

He was the first of the Capetians, the royal house that ruled France until 1328. After the death of the Carolingian king of France, the nobles and prelates elected him king, setting aside the Carolingian claimant, Charles I; Hugh spent much of his reign fighting Charles. He later became involved in a controversy with the papacy over the deposition of the Carolingian archbishop of Reims. -------------------- Idwal Foel ap Anarawd (Idwal the Bald) (died 942) was a King of Gwynedd, referred to as King of the Britons by William of Malmesbury, in whose Gesta Regum Anglorum his name is spelled Judwalum in the original Latin (anglicized Jothwel).
