Shared note
Llyr married PENARDDUN, daughter of Beli who was the son of Mynogan/Manogan. Beli was a Druid king of Britain in BC 132 and who died in BC 72. Penarddun married Eurosswydd and had Nissyan and Evnissyen. She was the sister of Caswallon/Cassibilane/Cassiovelaunus and Lud. (Wurts, 1942; Morgan, 1911; Mabinogion) Children: ? Bran/Cynvelin/Cunobelinus (Wurts, 1942; Morgan, 1911; Mabinogion) ? Manawydan (Mabinogion) ? Branwen/Bronwen (Morgan, 1911; Mabinogion) ? Granwen (Mabinogion) Dunraven castle was the home of Llyr and was situated on a hill which was called Twyn Rhyvan or 'The Hill of Rome'. Llyr was educated in Rome by Augustus Caesar, though he probably lived in one of the royal seats of Siluria, Dunraven Castle in Glamorgan. from http://www.allcensus.com/genealogy/pafn510.htm Llyr's grandson, Caradoc, spoke Latin so fluently and eloquently at Rome, before the Imperial throne in the camp of Mars, to Claudius Caesar, the Empress Agrippina, the Roman Court and other nobility, he was pardoned for resisting the Roman Army. More often than not, in the Roman provinces of Spain, France, and Britain, Celtic chieftains continued to rule over their tribes and territory. These warlords might have Latin names, live in Roman villas, and fight alongside legionary armies, but they were still Celts. Celtic warlords accepted the material luxuries, military sophistication, Christian religion and Latin literature of the Romans, but underneath it all, they remained in control of their own land and kept Celtic tribal loyalties and customs. (Wurts, 1942; Morgan, 1911) An historical quote attributed to Llyr: "No folly but ends in misery." (Wurts, 1942; Morgan, 1911)
