Rhodri ap Merfyn (c. 820 – 873), also known as Rhodri the Great, became King of Gwynedd in 844 and later Powys and Seisyllwg. In various histories, he was referred to as the King of Wales. He was the husband of Angharad ferch Meurig, with whom he formed a unified and savvy leadership.[2]

Personality and characteristics

Rhodri was a robust and authoritarian king who would not hesitate to use violence against his enemies, especially against his nemesis Ivarr the Boneless, whom he detested with all his soul. [citation needed] Despite being a devout Christian and faithful to his religion, he resorted to divination to know his fate, and all his seers predicted that he would die at the hands of a dragon. [citation needed]

Behind the scenes

Rhodri the Great is a character that appears in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. He is voiced by Welsh actor Paul Amos, who also voiced Jacob Frye in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate.[3]

Rhodri's date of death has been a subject of much debate. The Brut y Tywysogion records his death occurring at the Battle of Sunday on Anglesey in 873, while the Annales Cambriae has the two events occurring in different years. Egerton Phillimore recorded his death as 877 in his article Y Cymmroder. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states that Rhodri and his brother Gwriad were killed in battle against the Mercians in 878.[4]
