  Kingdom of Gwynedd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gwynedd was one of the kingdoms or principalities of medieval Wales.
Gwynedd covered the territory of the Ordovices, but tradition traced the kingdom's foundation to Cunedda, who migrated with his sons and followers from what is now southern Scotland.
During the period of the Norman conquest of Wales, between the years 1066 and 1282, Gwynedd was a centre of national resistance, the last stronghold of the native Welsh princes against the kings of England.

 Gwynedd - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gwynedd is a principal area in Wales, named after the old Kingdom of Gwynedd.
As the new Gwynedd covers most of the traditional counties of Caernarfonshire (less the part in the borough of Conwy) and Merionethshire, the reconstituted area was originally named Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire.

 Medieval Gwynedd
he history of the kingdom of Gwynedd from the 5th to 11th centuries reflects its struggles against its neighbors within Wales, notably with Deheubarth to the south and Powys to the south-east, and against increasingly powerful Saxon kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria, which threatened the area east of the river Clwyd.
Gwynedd, with its capital at Aberffraw, was naturally strong, its rich Anglesey farmlands protected by the barrier of Snowdonia.
Indeed, in Gwynedd, where Llywelyn ap Iorwerth rose to power at the beginning of the 13th century, and was quick to adopt the stone castle, one might expect to see a more clearly defined pattern to the use of such strongholds by the Welsh.

 Gwynedd   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Covering an area in the north-west of the country around Snowdonia and including the island of Anglesey, its rulers - such as Owain Gwynedd, Llywelyn the Great and Llywelyn the Last - tended to gain the ascendancy over their rivals.
In the local government reorganisation of the early 1970s, the name Gwynedd was revived and given to one of the eight new administrative counties.
In the latest round of local government reorganisation, in 1996, Gwynedd County Council was reconstituted to cover most of the old county of Caernarfonshire (less the part in the borough of Conwy) and Merionethshire, but it no longer includes Anglesey.

 Churches of Gwynedd
The religeous calendar was at the heart of its people`s lives and in spite of all the political turbulence of the time,the yearly rituals of the church went on largely undisturbed.
Deiniol, under the patronage of Maelgwn Gwynedd, established a monastic community in the valley of the river Adda in the second quarter of the sixth century.
Because Owain Gwynedd died an excommunicate it is said that his body was moved a few feet to lie outside the cathedral walls, although still in consecrated ground.

 The Sub-Kingdoms of Gwynedd
Whomever the motivator of this tribal migration, Cunedda himself was said to have been ruler of the Manau Goutodin (which was a sub-division, forming the westernmost part of the Goutodin kingdom in modern Lothian) and was induced to migrate south with eight sons and one grandson.
He may have had familial links with Gwynedd anyway, and under him and his son, Rhodri Mawr (the Great), Gwynedd came to rule large areas of North Wales, and at times unified the whole of Wales, especially in the face of later Norman invasions.
It is in Gwynedd that one of the last signs of the concept of Roman citizenship can be found, on a gravestone where a "cousin" of Maelgwn Fawr (Maelgwn Gwynedd, High King) proudly proclaims himself a Venedotis Cives, a citizen of Gwynedd.

 Kingdoms of Cymru Celts - Gwynedd
Although Gwynedd remains whole politically, the land within it is divided between Cunedda's surviving sons, who then operate as sub-kings to Einion Yrth.
Gwynedd had survived intense rivalries from within Wales, as well as outside threats from Irish, Angles, Saxons, Vikings and Norman raiders and would-be-conquerors.
It had done so through a combination of might and well-placed diplomacy that nevertheless failed to withstand the final, determined assault from the English in the person of Edward I. Llywelyn is beheaded and the grisly trophy taken by Roger Mortimer of Chirk to Rhuddlan.
