  • Within the charter itself, there are no obvious indications of date. Liber Landauensis(4) records that Bleddri was reputedly consecrated in 983 with the consent of Kings Owain, Idwallon, Cadell and Cynfyn, sons of Morgan Hen, who were all ruling in Morgannwg, ..... The account goes on to say that Bleddri died thirty nine years after his consecration, that is ca 1022.
  • Davies(5) has pointed out, however, that Aelfric was not made archbishop of Canterbury until 995; so either the date of Bleddri's consecration as supplied by Liber Landauensis is wrong, or, even more probably, the association with Canterbury is false, and originates not in any historical fact, but in the policy pursued by Bishop Urban in the twelfth century of placating the see of Canterbury.
  • ....etc.
  • None of the other individuals named within the charter are of use with this problem either. The king, Rhys ab Owain, is not known from any other source, and this is his only charter-attestation. Apparently he was a grandson of Morgan Hen who, according to the Brutiau and Annales Cambriae, died ca 974. If the consecration-record of Bleddri can be used, then it would suggest that Rhys's father Owain was alive ca 983. Owain also features in charter 240, in association with his father and brothers.
