Saint Dyfrig, the then "archbishop" of Wales, was obviously not meeting his 'quota', so David took over the primacy of Wales, and moved the See of Wales from Caerleon (in Monmouthshire) to the village which is now known as Saint David's ('Mynyw', or 'Menevia').
Saint Dyfrig was an important leader in the Church in south-east Wales and the Welsh Marches.
