Doomed to Disaster.The son of PWYLL and RHIANNON, he was snatched from his cot by Gnawl, a rejected suitor, and found in a stable by Teirnon, a chieftain. Teirnon's wife called the child Gwri and it was seven years before they managed to locate the parents. Not happy years for RHIANNON as she had been accused of killing the baby and forced to sit at the entrance of PWYLL Castle confessing her crime and having to carry guests on her back.
When PWYLL died and PRYDERI came into his inheritance, he was very happy to give his mother in marriage to MANAWYDAN son of LIR. But not for long as a strange mist came down at the wedding banquet, and when it lifted everything was gone. Estate, animals, folks, crops. All gone. Just empty barren lands. Only PRYDERI, his wife CIGFA, RHIANNON and MANAWYDAN were left.
For what happened next you will have to tune in to our entry on RHIANNON...
