Gwawl ap Clûd (Light Divine Son of Gleam) Gwawrddur Cyrfach (Dawn) Cedarn, Cadarn (Powerful) Gwallawg ap Lleenawg (Light)

He charged before three hundred of the finest,
He cut down both centre and wing,
He excelled in the forefront of the noblest host,
He gave gifts of horses from the herd in winter.
He fed black ravens on the rampart of a fortress
Though he was no Arthur.
Among the powerful ones in battle,
In the front rank, Gwawrddur was a palisade.
– Y Gododdin
