Penteyrn

Postby Jonathon Chester » Fri Jun 29, 2018 9:54 am

I noticed of Zedmeister's future round up there will be a new warlord for the Brythoniaid called the Penteyrn. What place does he/she have in the hierarchy of the kindred and will they have anything special compared to the Teyrn?

Well, Pen means head, so he's basically one step above a Teyrn - a head king or chief.

That's not to say he's "the" king - that would be Cadwaladr, the Rhi of Gwynedd - but what you have to understand is that the Welsh kings devolved land to their sons, who became petty kings in their own right (which led to massive problems when it came to coming together to fight, arguments between brothers, successions, etc. etc.) So a Penteyrn is a sort of head king, where his sons became Teyrnau, etc. etc.

Cheers
