     GAV-40 EDV-40. Brochfael Ysgythrog "of the Tusks" ap Cyngen was King of Powys, [Ashley, pp. 152-153] BROCHFAEL YSGYTHROG (OF THE TUSKS) Powys, fl 570s. The first ruler of Powys to establish himself in the bardic memory, where his name became synonymous with his kingdom. This suggests that it was Brochfael more than any of his predecessors who carved out a recognizable kingdom from the mass of petty chieftainships that no doubt existed in eastern, northern and central Wales. Apparently his capital was at Pengwern, the Celtic fortress that became Shrewsbury, and his lands almost certainly extended north toward Chester and possibly westward as far as Builth. Brochfael must have maintained good relations with his neighbours, especially RHUN of Gwynedd and the long-lived MORGAN of Morgannwg, to have developed his kingdom without a history of bloodshed. In addition to his son CYNAN, Brochfael was the father of St Tysilio, whose cult spread throughout Wales and whose mission probably helped bond the emerging kingdoms of Wales for at least a brief period. It was Tysilio who established the ecclesiastical centre of Powys at Meifod. circa 570.1

     He was King of Powys, [Ashley, p. 153] SELYF AP CYNAN Powys, ? -613 (or 615?). The son of CYNAN AP BROCHFAEL whose kingdom stretched down through the Welsh Marches from Chester to Shrewsbury, and possibly further south. His name is recorded in the annals because he was killed in the battle of Chester that marked the victory of ATHELFRITH of Northumbria over the Welsh princes of Gwynedd and Powys. Athelfrith's anger was directed toward EDWIN of Northumbria who had sought refuge amongst the Welsh kingdoms. It seems that Powys acted as a haven for several dispossessed rulers at this time. RHUN the son of URIEN of Rheged came to Powys as a monk. This suggests that Selyf was a benign and compassionate ruler. The fact that he is sometimes called Solomon may also indicate his wisdom. His death cast Powys into a period of turmoil before the emergence of CYNDDYLAN as its next strong ruler.1

The brother of SELYF, Eiludd presumably survived the battle of Chester and endeavoured to regain control of Powys. Since little is heard of Powys at this time it is possible that Eiludd ruled only as a client king of CADFAN of Gwynedd. This period of Powys's history is uncertain but it is probable that following the death of Selyf his family were unable to sustain the large kingdom created by his grandfather, BROCHFAEL, and that Eiludd ruled only Northern Powys, whilst a scion of the family, perhaps a cousin, CYNDRWYN ruled Pengwern to the south.1

     GAV-37 EDV-37 GKJ-37. Beli ap Eiludd was King of Powys, [Ashley, p. 154] BELI AP EILUDD Powys, fl 630s. Beli features in the ancestry of ELISEDD of Powys, but the ancient genealogy provides us with a confusion over dates. If Beli was genuinely the son of EILUDD, and nephew of SELYF, then he must have lived in the decade or two after the Battle of Chester in 613. This would make him a contemporary with CADWALLON of Gwynedd, and there is little doubt that the rulers of Gwynedd and Powys at this time would have united in their campaign against the Northumbrians. Like Cadwallon, Beli was probably driven into exile by EDWIN. However, his son GWYLOG married the daughter of NOWY of Dyfed, and Nowy is a generation earlier than Beli, which would place him into at least the 590s if not earlier. This would make it impossible for Beli to be the grandfather of Elisedd who lived around 725. These anomalies are far from being resolved. circa 630.1

     GAV-36 EDV-36. Gwylog ap Beli was King of Powys, [Ashley, p. 154] GWYLOG Powys, dates uncertain (fl 700s?). Gwylog is shown both as the father of ELISEDD who lived about 725 and as the son of BELI who lived about 620, and these dates are incompatible. Gwylog also married Sanan, the daughter of NOWY of Dyfed, which would place Gwylog back around the period 620 or even earlier. Clearly the genealogies are at fault. This is not surprising. The period from the Battle of Chester in 613 to the recovery of the lands of Powys under Elisedd in 725 was a dark age for the Welsh when many were driven into exile by the Northumbrians and Mercians, apart from the brief period of triumph of CYNDDYLAN who does not feature anywhere in the genealogies. We must conclude that at least two generations of Powys' rulers have been lost and that during these years the land was probably dominated by the rulers of Gwynedd. circa 700.1

     GAV-35 EDV-35. Elisedd ap Gwylog was King of Powys, [Ashley, p. 155] ELISEDD (or ELISEG) Powys, 725-? Elisedd was remembered by his great grandson, CYNGEN AP CADELL, a century later, for having rebuilt Powys and recovered lands from the English. He erected a stone column, now known as "Eliseg's Pillar" which commemorated his descent, tracing it all the way back to VORTIGERN. The genealogy provides us with some dating problems, but we must assume that Elisedd lived sometime in the early/mid eighth century. This coincides with the reign of the Mercian king ATHELBALD, a turbulent period where the Mercians generally had the upper hand but where some victories went to the underdogs. We can imagine that Elisedd succeeded in regaining lands along the Welsh/Mercian border from this powerful king, which made his victories all the more significant. It is possible that Elisedd ruled (or was active as a battle leader) earlier, because there are Welsh border incidents recorded during the reign of the Mercian king CENRED, around the year 708. The fact that the Pillar was erected at Llangollen, well inside the later Welsh border, shows that these territorial gains were not permanent. circa 725.1

The son of ELISEDD, little is known of his reign, except that it would have paralleled that of Mercia's greatest king, OFFA. Whatever lands Elisedd had gained in the first half of the century, Brochfael probably lost in the second half. Offa undertook many raids into Wales during his reign, some as far west as Dyfed, and Powys was little more than a doorstep to his mighty army. Although the dates of Brochfael's reign are not known, it is possible he reigned for a considerable period. It was during his reign that Offa's Dyke was constructed, a remarkable feat of engineering which must have taken many men many years. It is a sign of Offa's power that it could be achieved at all, and it is probable that it was the men of Powys and of Glywysing who were pressed into service to complete the work. It served as much as a line of demarcation as a defence, and as such shows that Offa effectively agreed a border between the Welsh and the English which would help sustain peace. Brochfael would therefore have benefited from the Dyke in the short term, though in the long term it spelled the end for Powys. Brochfael was succeeded by his son CADELL. circa 760.1

Alan Durward Earl of Atholl, jure uxoris
Per Med Lands:
     "ALAN Durward (-[1268/75], bur Cuprose). "…A hostiar comite Athol…" witnessed the charter dated 5 Jan 1234 under which Alexander II King of Scotland confirmed "terram…de Kalentyr" to Holyrood abbey[432]. "Alan Ostiari dni Regis" confirmed the donation of "nemore de Trostach" to Aberbrothoc by undated charter witnessed by "…David de Hasting…Colyn Ostiari…"[433]. "Alani Hostiarii domini regis" donated "de duabus Dauatis terræ in territorio meo de Luntrathen, viz. Clentolath et Balcassay" to Cupar abbey by undated charter witnessed by "Domino Nigello comite de Carryke, Domino Johane de Hasting, Domino Gilberto de Haya…Domino Colino de Lundein"[434]. He was appointed Justiciar of Scotia in [1244][435]. "Alanus Ostiarius, Justiciarius Scocie" donated property "in parochia de Logindurnach" to Lindores Abbey, for the souls of "pie recordationis domini mei Alexandri quondam…regis Scocie et…Margerie uxoris mee", by undated charter dated to after 1249, witnessed by "Domino Colino Ostiario fratre meo…"[436]. The Chronicle of Melrose reports that he plotted in 1251 to have his illegitimate daughter "by the sister of the king" legitimated and declared heir to the throne, the plot being revealed by Henry III King of England[437]. Alan Durward rebelled again in 1254, defeated a Scottish army, and plotted to capture King Alexander at Edinburgh in 1255 under the pretext of arranging a peace conference[438]. Alan Durward claimed the earldom of Mar in 1257, impugning the legitimacy of his predecessors, a bull of Pope Alexander IV dated 4 Oct 1257 detailing the whole case[439]. "David de Strathbolgy comes Atholiæ" confirmed the donation of "terra de Dunfolemthim" to Cupar abbey made by "Nessus medicus domini regis" [see above], for the souls of "Domini David de Hastings quondam comitis Atholiæ et Forflissæ comitissæ suæ et Elenæ quondam sponsæ nostræ", by undated charter witnessed by "…Domino Alano Hostiario…Domino Thoma Hostiario…"[440]. The Chronicle of Lanercost records the death in 1268 of "dominus Alanus dictus Durward, comitis de Fife propinquus"[441]. John of Fordun’s Scotichronicon (Continuator) records the death in 1275 of "Alanus Ostiarius" and his burial "apud monasterium de Cupro", adding that his lands were divided between "tribus filiabus"[442].
     "[m firstly (before Jan 1210) as her second husband, ISABEL Ctss of Atholl, daughter of HENRY Earl of Atholl & his wife Margaret --- (-before 1242). This possible marriage is discussed by Noel Paton[443]. It would explain why Alan Durward was designated Earl of Atholl in 1233 and 1235, as he may have held the earldom in wardship for his supposed stepson[444].]
     "m [secondly] ([1244]) MARJORY, illegitimate daughter of ALEXANDER III King of Scotland & his mistress ---. "Alanus Ostiarius, Justiciarius Scocie" donated property "in parochia de Logindurnach" to Lindores Abbey, for the souls of "pie recordationis domini mei Alexandri quondam…regis Scocie et…Margerie uxoris mee", by undated charter dated to after 1249, witnessed by "Domino Colino Ostiario fratre meo…"[445]. Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by John of Fordun’s Scotichronicon (Continuator) which records that "Robertus abbas de Dunfermelyn, cancellarius regis" was accused of proposing "sororem regis notham…uxorem Alani Ostiarii" as successor to the throne in 1251[446]. Alan & his [second] wife had three children:
     "(a) ERMENGARDE .
     "(b) daughter (-after 1275).
     "(c) daughter (-after 1275)."

Willem II (?) Count of Holland, Emperor Elect
Willem II was only seven years old when he became Count of Holland. At first his two uncles, Otto and Willem, acted as regent. However, Otto became Elect of Utrecht in 1233 while Willem was killed in a tournament in 1238, so from then on it was his mother, Machteld, who acted as his regent.

Aged only twenty, he became Emperor Elect, first on 3 October 1247 and again on 25 March 1252; but it was only after the death of Konrad IV in 1254 that he was generally accepted. In 1252 he married Elisabeth of Brunswick and they became the parents of two children. In December 1255 they were in Worms when Elisabeth, on an outing to the castle Trifels near Speyer, was abducted by the robber baron Herman von Rietberg who, after a high ransom was paid, released her.

In February 1255 he placed himself at the head of the 'Rheinische Städtebund'. However, before he could be crowned Emperor he was killed, on 28 January 1256 near Hoogwoud, in a minor battle against the West Friesians. It took until 1284 before his body was recovered and then buried in the Abbey Church of Middelburg.2 Willem II (?) Count of Holland, Emperor Elect was also known as William II Count of Holland.7 He was Count of Holland between 1234 and 1256.3

Floris V (?) Count of Holland died on 27 June 1296 at Muiderberg, Netherlands (now), at age 41; murdered.1,2,3,4
     Floris V (?) Count of Holland
He was only two years old when he became Count of Holland, his uncle, Floris 'de Voogd' (Regent) acted as his regent. However, when the latter was accidentally killed at a tournament in 1258, it was his aunt Aleida who became Regent of Holland from 1258 until 1263, when she was replaced by Otto II, Count of Gelre. Then in 1266 Floris V was declared to be of age when only twelve years old.

In 1274 he had to act against an uprising in Kennemerland and, in 1277, he both banished his cousin Jan van Avesnes and forced the Bishop of Utrecht to hand properties over to him. In 1284 he defeated the West Friesians while at the same time involved in continual quarrels over Zeeland with his father-in-law, the Count of Flanders. For many years he sided with the English but, in 1296, changed his alliance to the French. On 27 June 1296, instigated by the English, he was murdered by Gerard van Velzen at Muiderberg.

After the murder, Gerard van Velzen and his supporters fled to hide at castle Kroonenburg. However, an army under command of the Count of Cleves took the castle and the supporters of Gerard van Velzen were beheaded. Gerard van Velzen was stripped naked and placed in a barrel with long nails hammered in from the outside. Then the barrel was rolled through the streets of Leiden. While the castle was raised to the ground.2

She took the opposite site from her husband, who supported the English. She acted in place of her brother the imprisoned Earl of Fife as premier peer of Scotland at the coronation and placed the crown on the head of King Robert Bruce at Scone, 29 March 1306. In the same year the English captured her and imprisoned her in an iron cage at Berwick and was not released until April 1313. She was childless."1,2
