Angharad verch Maredudd   

Angharad was born about 0982 in Rhuddlan, Wales.1 Birth Notes Angharad's father was Maredydd ap Owain and her mother was <Unknown>. Her paternal grandparents were Owain ap Hywel and Angharad verch Llewelyn. She had two brothers and a sister, named Rhys, Cadwallon and Lleucu. She was the youngest of the four children.

Llywelyn ap Seisyllt & Angharad verch Maredudd 

They had a son named Gruffudd.

Gruffudd ap Llewellen Gruffudd was born about 1000 in Rhuddlan, Flintshire, Wales.1 He died on August 5th, 1063.1

In 1018 Llywelyn ap Seisyll killed Aeddan ab Blegywryd and his four sons. Quite who Aeddan was is open to speculation, but Llywelyn was probably king of Gwynedd - he certainly was four years later. Llywelyn's background is obscure. Medieval genealogists contrived to make his mother (Prawst) the daughter of an otherwise unknown son (Elisedd) of Anarawd ap Rhodri Mawr. It is not unreasonable to assume that both Prawst and Elisedd are inventions. From the 'Brut y Tywysogion', it is known that Llywelyn married Angharad, daughter of Maredudd ab Owain. In 1022, an Irishman called Rhain, claiming to be the son of Maredudd, gained acceptance as king of Deheubarth:

"And Llywelyn, son of Seisyll, supreme king of Gwynedd, and the chief and most renowned king of all the Britons, made war against him." 'Brut y Tywysogion' Rhain was defeated, at Abergwili - he fled, never to be seen again. Llywelyn followed up his victory by ravaging Deheubarth ("destroying it as far as Mercia").

Angharad married first to Llywelyn ap Seisyll, Prince of Deheubarth (1018 - 1023) and they had a son: Gruffydd ap Llywelyn who inflicted a series of defeats on the English, and made alliances with the enemies of King Edward the Confessor. Gruffydd fought a long campaign against rival kings to win overall control of Wales. By 1055, he had become master of Deheubarth and had expanded his rule to the lesser kingdoms of Morgannwg (Glamorgan) and Gwent. In 1063, Earl Harold Godwinsson (later Harold II) and his brother Tostig made a joint attack on Gwynedd. At the same time, Deheubarth rebelled against Gruffydd’s rule. Gruffydd fled and was murdered by his own men. Gruffydd married Ealdgyth, a daughter of Ælfgar, Earl of Mercia. Ealdgyth married second in circa 1064 to Harold Godwineson, the last Anglo-Saxon King of England. Ealdgyth and Gruffydd had a son: Maredudd ap Gruffydd who was excluded from the throne by his uncles Bleddyn ap Cynfyn and Rhywallon ap Cynfyn.

Angharad married second to Cynfyn ap Gwerystan of Powys, a lord in Powys about whom little is known. Angharad and Cynfyn had the following children:

Rhywallon ap Cynfyn Bleddyn ap Cynfyn a daughter who married Owain ap Edwin, Lord Tegaingl, and they had a daughter: Angharad who married Gruffydd ap Cynan, Prince of Gwynedd and/or King of North Wales from 1081 until his death in 1137. Click on Gruffydd ap Cynan for this line.
