Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Meurig ap Tewdrig (Latin: Mauritius) was the son of Tewdrig (St. Tewdrig), and a king of the early Welsh kingdoms of Gwent and Glywysing. He is thought to have lived sometime between 400 and 600 AD. Meurig took over the Gwent throne upon his father's abdication. According to tradition, Tewdrig became a hermit at Tintern, but later came to the assistance of Meurig, and they repelled the invading Saxons in a battle at Pont y Saeson (Bridge of the Saxons). Tewdrig died after the battle, and Meurig buried him at Mathern, giving the surrounding land (including the area of the later village of Pwllmeurig, named after Meurig), in his memory to the bishops of Llandaff.show more
