Gruffudd ap Cynan: a collaborative biography
Studies in Celtic History;16
The genealogy of Gruffudd ap Cynan is preserved in the Historia Gruffud vab Kenan, which it introduces, and also in Welsh genealogical manuscripts of the fifteenth and later centuries. While the latter material is demonstrably derived from a version of that in the Historia, it contains some additional information lacking in the main text. The following discussion will concentrate on the genealogy as it is given in the Historia but will also refer to the later copies where it is useful to do so.
