  Aneirin: an early Cymric bard, also known as Neirin (The Noble One)
Aneirin is first mentioned in Nennius' Historia Brittonum compiled around 800CE where he gives a list of the cynfeirdd (the earliest bards working in Old Cymric) and names them all as Talhaearn Tad Awen, Neirin, Taliesin, Bluchfardd and Cian Gweinth Gwawd (Cian Servant of Satire).
This Lleenawg is the father of Gwallawg one of the heroes of the 'Old North' and a descendant of Coel Hen whom Nennius ames as a member of the confederation of Brythonic kings led by Urien Rheged in his opposition to the Berenician king Hussa as well as a number of other Saxon leaders.
That Aneirin was considered the epitome of poetic inspiration is made clear by the references made to the bard by the gogynfeirdd (the later than early bards) and indicates that Anerin's mythos and reputation were alive and well during the early Middle Ages, suggesting a continuity of knowledge about him.

 WHY
Aneirin’s Y Gododdin, (c.600 CE) the first surviving major bardic poem written in a dialect of Welsh (Cumbrian, or Northern Old Welsh) recounts the major battle which lead to the downfall of Y Gwyr y Gogledd, including Gododdin itself, but also ultimately Elmet.
It has also been suggested that Aneirin was Gwallawg’s nephew, being the son of the latter’s sister, Dwywai.
Ultimately, though, the Gododdin’s attempt to halt English expansionism at Catraeth had tragic results, and according to Aneirin, only three survivors of the Celtic army left the field alive.
