Deroch II, Prince of Domnonée
(c.AD 495-530)

(Welsh-Deroch, Latin-Darocus, English-Derek)

Not much is known about Prince Deroch II, son of Riwal Mawr Marchou of Domnonée. He was certainly a patron of the Domnonian Church and, in the early 6th century, he gave land at Lan Pabu to his cousin, St. Tugdual, in order to found an extensive monastery. He was succeeded by his son, Prince Jonas.
