Conomor, King of Dumnonia
(born c.395)

(Welsh-Cynfarch, Latin-Cunomorus, English-Cunomor)

He succeeded his father, Tutwal, and may have been the first of the Dumnonian Kings to live at Castle Dore, near Lantyan (Cornwall). A memorial stone nearby records the burial place of his son, Tristram (or Drustanus). This name association, along with Breton stories of a King Conomor who was also known as Mark (or March: short for Cyn-march), has led to confusion with his evil great grandson. However, the Breton Conomor was a contemporary of King Childebert of Paris who ruled between 511 & 558, some hundred years after this Dumnonian.
