Family History
Iowerth has heard stories of his Great-Grandfather Rhydwym from a senile grandmother who never met the man. He lived at the time when the Romans left Britain and saw both Saxon invasions and political intrigue. In the religious struggles of the period he adopted a British Christian stance. He died in 438, just in time to see his son, Dremidydd, knighted. He passed with 1600 Glory.

Dremidydd had 1171 Glory when he was knighted. He lived a brief life, but had a son, Gwydyon, in 439 who had a lengthy career that more than made up for his father's in family lore. Dremidydd fought the Irish at the Battle of Carlion the same year his son was born, but fell to Pictish raiders the following year in 440. Ironically, Dremidydd was given a potion of healing from a hermit, but was cut down before he could make use of it. Dremidydd passed with 1231 Glory.

The Night of Long Knives occur in 463, many of the knights of Salisbury were killed. Gwydyon is knighted the following year with 1123 Glory. The same year, Gwydyon was married to a landed widow, and claims the estate of Woodford. His son, Iowerth, is born in 465. He fights with distinction at the Siege of Carlion for its entirety and stays with the High King's army in 568 where, at the Battle of Snowdon, he is present for the collapse of Vortigern's army and the usurper's death.

Aurelius Ambrosius maintains an unsteady peace with the Saxons, Irish, and Picts for some years despite their raiding. His younger brother, Uther, makes a name for himself as a great warrior in countering these raids and leading picked warriors, including Gwydyon, on raids into enemy territory in 469. Following this foreign excursion, Gwydyon serves garrison duty, helping repel raiding parties for seven years.

Gwydyon leaves Britain once again to take part in the Battle of Frisia, in 478-479. He makes a name for himself as a swift rider when the army disembarked as he surprised the Saxon welcome party by breaking their lines and lancing a war leader. This effort does great damage to the Saxons there, and the battle against the barbarians on the whole. The Saxons in Britain begin vicious raiding in retaliation.

The Saxon seek revenge the next year, with an army of Saxons sailing up the Port River into Salisbury. While preparing for battle, the High King is poisoned by a false doctor. Despite the knowing that the dose he took was fatal, Ambrosius marches to meet the enemy while Uther commands the fleet to cut the Saxons off from their ships. Gwydyon fights in the vanguard with the High King and acquits himself well. It is a great victory for the British despite the loss of Ambrosius. Gwydyon is present for the burial of the High King at the Giants' Dance (Stonehenge) and is present when the High Council selects Uther as the new Pendragon, or war leader.

With lingering injuries from long years of campaigning, Gwydyon is set to garrison duty, which allows him to spend time training his squire, his son Iowerth. In 484, Earl Roderick calls all of his knights to arms. Early in the year Gwydyon participates in the Battle of Eburacum, attacking the Saxons in the dead of night before being forced to flee.

At the moment, he is still on campaign, but has sent Gwydyon home to Woodford with the healing potion has father had left to him on the understanding that the young man is set to join the knighthood. Iowerth currently has 268 Glory.
