 BBC - History - Magnus Maximus, active c.AD 380   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Magnus Maximus was a Roman general of Spanish origin and was active in Britain in c.AD 380, resisting the incursions of the Picts and Scots.
In withdrawing the garrisons, he is believed to have acknowledged the right of some of the Brythonic peoples of Britain to undertake their own defence, an acknowledgement which later historians have seen as a recognition of their right to quasi-independence.
This has caused Magnus to be hailed as the father of Brythonic autonomy, and - by extension - the father of the Welsh nation.

These two conflicting chronologies vividly illustrate both the difficulty of Gildas as a source and the overall lack of secure anchor-points in constructing a chronology for fifth-century Britain.
Dumville's chronology takes as its anchors: the death of Magnus Maximus in 388; the Honorian rescript of 410; and the third consulship of Agitius (Aetius) in 446.
Higham's chronology depends on: the death of Magnus Maximus in 388; and the 441 entry in the Gallic Chronicle of 452.
