BRAN
Also known as BRAN-THE-BLESSED

A picture showing the legend of BRAN taken from our Celtic mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Celtic Gods, Celtic Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Mighty Celtic ruler who had his head cut off in battle.

But thanks to his mighty Cauldron of Rebirth it lived on. Could this be the origin of the phrase 'Go and boil your head'? After a stint in Wales the head was taken to the Tower of London to keep England safe from invasion.

His name means 'Raven' and the job has been passed to the Ravens of the Tower of London. We would like to talk to the Godhead but need to head in the right direction which is not known at present.
