Boring Yet Illustrious Ancestors

Anna (Don Verch Mathonwy) Enygeus” who was also a warrior who’d sing!
First married “Beli Mawr Heli, Ap Manogan; which 2-of-my line descend.

Descendants from Anna’s seed, as royals, help detour from royal greed.
Caractacus was an enemy-star, stood trial bef. Roman tribunal; yet freed!

Their dau. Prawst weds Brychan ‘the St.’ Ap Anlach, a King of Brycheiniog.

Son Usai Ceredig was b.453 Ceredigion, Wales; ruled-&-didn’t play games.
Then came Sewrwyl Ap Usai, his son Boddw/ Podew Serwyl who ruled Wales.
