  Maelgwn Hir ap Cadwallon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When King Maelgwn attempted to show the finger to Elphin, he pointed out that his wife cut her fingernails more often than the owner of the finger, had servants to kneed dough and never had any under her nails, and her ring was loose on her finger, and that one was tight.
Maelgwn on this occasion, in order to prove the superiority of vocal song over instrumental music, is recorded to have offered a reward to such bards and minstrels as should swim over the Conway.
Maelgwn "the Dragon of the Isle" was a main character in the two trilogies (The Ancient Future trilogy and The Celestial Triad) written by Australian author Traci Harding.

Mae Gildas yn cyhuddo Maelgwn o fod wedi gyrru ei ewythr o'i deyrnas trwy rym "ym mlynyddoedd cyntaf dy ieuenctid".
Erbyn diwedd ei deyrnasiad yr oedd Maelgwn wedi ei sefydlu ei hun fel y brenin mwyaf grymus yng Nghymru, ac etifeddodd ei fab Rhun ei deyrnas.

Gruffudd ap Llywelyn, originally king of Gwynedd, was able to make himself king of most of Wales in the mid 11th century, but was defeated by Harold Godwinson in 1063 and killed by his own men.
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.
In particular the rebellions of Prince Madoc in 1294, Owain Lawgoch (the great-nephew of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd) between 1372-1378, and Owain Glyndwr in 1400 are most notable.

 Ancestry of Cynan Tyndaethwy of Gwynedd
The chronology of the family says no; Iago ap Beli and Beli ap Rhun would appear to have been members of the same generation, both born in the period 540/545.
Geoffrey of Monmouth apparently knew that the father of Iago was named Beli ap Einion[5] but, like much of his flawed work, incorrectly identified this Einion as a second son of Maelgwn Gwynedd.
She suggests the Einion in "Iago ap Beli ap Einion" was the actual ancestor and that he was a cousin of Maelgwn.

Ascending to the throne of what was then the most powerful kingdom of Britain in his twenties upon the death of his father, Maelgwn Hir ap Cadwallon, from plague, Rhun soon found himself embroiled in a dynastic dispute with Elidyr Llydanwyn, king of Rheged.
Elidyr had married Rhun's sister, and as a result believed himself to be the proper heir to the throne of Gwynedd.

According to this version of events, Vortigern would have instructed Cunedda and his Votadini subjects to move to Wales in response to the aforementioned Irish incursions no later than the year 442, when Vortigern's former Saxon allies rebelled against his rule.
Cunedda's supposed grandson Maelgwn Hir ap Cadwallon was a contemporary of Gildas, and according to the Annales Cambriae died in 547.
The reliability of early Welsh genealogies is not uncontested however, and many of the claims regarding the number and identity of Cunedda's heirs did not surface until as late as the 10th century.
