High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Merfyn Frych or Merfyn
Frych ap Gwriad was King of Gwynedd (reigned 825 - 844), the first
king not descended from the male line of Maelgwn Gwynedd. Little is
known of his reign, and his primary notability is as the father of
Rhodri the Great. Merfyn came to the throne in the aftermath of a
bloody dynastic struggle between brothers Cynan (reigned 798 - 816)
and Hywel (reigned 816 - 825), at a time when the kingdom had been
under pressure from Mercia. The Annales Cambriae says that he died
in 844, the same year in which a battle occurred at Ketill (or
Cetyll), but it does not make clear whether there is a connection,
or whether it is referring to two unrelated events.
