About Tasciovanus ap Llud, King of Catuvellauni

TASCIOVANUS TENANTIUS ap LLUD LUD LLAWR

King of Britain

BIRTH: Abt 60 B.C. in Montgomeryshire, Powys, Wales

DEATH: Abt 9 A.D.

BURIAL:

FATHER: Llud Lud Llaw ap BELI MAWR - Abt 90 B.C. in Cornwall, England (Britain)

MOTHER: Anna - Princess of Cornwall - Abt 88 B.C. in Cornwall, England (Britain)

MARRIAGE: Unknown

CHILDREN:

1. Cunobelinas 'Cymbeline' ap TASCIOVANUS TENANTIUS - Abt 34 B.C. in Glamorganshire, Wales

2. Epatticus ap TASCIOVANUS TENANTIUS - Abt 32 B.C. in Glamorganshire, Wales

Epaticcus expanded his influence into the territory of the Atrebates in the early 20s AD, taking the Atrebatan capital Calleva (Silchester) by about 25. He continued to expand his territory until his death in about 35, when his nephew Caratacus took

over from him and the Atrebates recovered some of their territory.

Tasciovanus was King of Britain and was a gentle, but firm ruler.

He seems to have become king of the Catuvellauni about 20 B.C.

ruling initially from Verulamium (St Albans). It appears that he ruled over the

Trinovantes for a brief period as some of his coins were issued from

Camulodunum (Colchester). He must have lost Camulodunum and then his coins

were again issued from Verulamium.

He refused to pay the Tribute to Rome which was exacted from his uncle

Caswallon when overcome by Julius Caesar. Then he reconquered Camulodunum

by about 9 A.D., and died shortly afterwards.

He had two notable sons: Cunobelinus, who succeeded him, and Epaticcus,

who gained territory at the expense of the Atrebates.

'Wikipedia.Com' -------------------- Tenefan ap Lludd of Britain was the son of the mythical "God of Healing" Lludd Llaw Ereint of Britain, for whom London was supposedly named. He was a historical king of the Catuvellauni tribe before the Roman conquest of Britain.

King Tenefan was also called Tenancius, or Tenuantius, or Tasciovanus, or Theomantius of the Trinovantes (the most powerful British tribe).

Tenefan is known only through numismatic evidence. He appears to have become king of the Catuvellauni ca. 20 BC, ruling from Verlamion (the site of modern-day St Albans). He is believed to have moved the tribal capital to that site from an earlier settlement, near modern-day Wheathampstead. For a brief period ca. 15-10 BC he issued coins from Camulodunum (Colchester), apparently supplanting Addedomarus of the Trinovantes. After this he once again issued his coins from Verulamium, now bearing the title Ricon, Brythonic for "great/divine king". Some of his coins bear other abbreviated names such as "DIAS", "SEGO" and "ANDOCO": these are generally considered to be the names of co-rulers or subordinate kings, but may instead be mint-marks.

A genealogy preserved in the medieval Welsh manuscript Harleian 3859 contains three generations which read "Caratauc map Cinbelin map Teuhant". This is the equivalent of "Caratacus, son of Cunobelinus, son of Tasciovanus", putting the three historical figures in the correct order, although the wrong historical context, the degree of linguistic change suggesting a long period of oral transmission. The remainder of the genealogy contains the names of a sequence of Roman emperors, and two Welsh mythological figures, Guidgen (Gwydion) and Lou (Lleu).

Tenefan appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae (1136) as the legendary king Tenvantius, son of Lud. When his father died, he and his older brother Androgeus were still minors, so the kingship of Britain was given to their uncle Cassibelanus. Tenvantius was made Duke of Cornwall, and participated in his uncle's defense of Britain against Julius Caesar. Androgeus went to Rome with Caesar, so when Cassibelanus died, Tenvantius succeeded him as king.

   Tasciovanus
   From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
   Tasciovanus was a historical king of the Catuvellauni tribe before the Roman conquest of Britain. He probably corresponds with Tenvantius, a legendary British king who appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Britanniae (History of the Kings of Britain) and related texts.
   Tasciovanus is known only through numismatic evidence. He appears to have become king of the Catuvellauni about 20 BC, ruling initially from Verulamium (St Albans). For a brief period ca. 15-10 BC his coins were issued from Camulodunum (Colchester), so it would seem he ruled over the Trinovantes at this time. After this his coins were once more issued from Verulamium, and no longer refer to him by the Latin title of "rex" (king). He reconquered Camulodunum by about 9 AD, and died not long afterwards.
   He had two notable sons: Cunobelinus, who succeeded him, and Epaticcus, who gained territory at the expense of the Atrebates.
   A genealogy preserved in the medieval Welsh manuscript Harleian 3859 contains three generations which read "Caratauc map Cinbelin map Teuhant". This is the equivalent of "Caratacus, son of Cunobelinus, son of Tasciovanus", putting the three historical figures in the correct order, although the wrong historical context, the degree of linguistic change suggesting a long period of oral transmission. The remainder of the genealogy contains the names of a sequence of Roman emperors, and two Welsh mythological figures, Guidgen (Gwydion) and Lou (Llew).
