  Kingdom of Powys - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Through-out the early Dark Ages, Powys was ruled by the Gwerthernion dynasty, a family claiming decent jointly from the marriage of Vortigern and Princess Elen, the daughter of Magnus Maximus.
In 616 Powys was attacked by Æthelfrith of Northumbria in his pursuit of a political rival, Edwin of Northumbria, whom had sought refuge in Gwynedd.
Powys was united with Gwynedd when king Merfyn Frych of Gwynedd married princess Nest, the sister of king Cyngen of Powys, the last representative of the Gwertherion dynasty.
