King of Ceredigion (424-453)
Ceredig, king of Ceredigion, was born c. 420 AD in the Brythonic kingdom of Manaw Gododdin (approximating modern Clackmannanshire in Scotland), centred on the Firth of Forth.
Son of Cunedda, he arrived in what is now modern Wales from Gododdin with his father's family when they were invited to help ward off Irish invaders. As a reward for his bravery, his father gave him the southern part of the territories in north-west Wales conquered from the Irish. The realm was named Ceredigion in his honour. 8743
