Rhain of Dyfed and Brycheiniog

Rhain of Dyfed and Brycheiniog

Rhain (died c.740) was the king of Dyfed and Brycheiniog in southern Wales in the first half of the 8th century. The previous king of Dyfed, Rhain's father Cloten, had married the princess of Brycheiniog, briefly uniting the two kingdoms. During Rhain's rule, Seisyll, king of Ceredigion, invaded Dyfed and conquered Ystrad Towi sometime c.710. Ceredigion and Ystrad Towi were merged to form Seisyllwg. Sometime after this, the reduced Dyfed and Brycheiniog were briefly called Rhainwg.
