King of Strathclyde
(Welsh-Cedig, Latin-Cedicius, English-Cedick)
Cedic - sometimes called Clinoch - was apparently the eldest son of King
of Strathclyde. He inherited his father's kingdom in the early 6th century, but had
many brothers and may therefore have only been the nominal overlord of most of the country.
For his brethren would not easily have given up their share. Largely reunited by the time
of his death, afterwards Strathclyde became divided once more. His eldest son, Tutgual Tutclyd
took the greater part, whilst lesser areas went to
Senyllt and Serwan.
