Elisedd, Kings of Brycheiniog
(born c.810)

(Latin-Elisetus, English-Ellis)

Elisedd was the son of King Tewdr of Brycheiniog, great grandson of the King of the same name who ruled in the mid-8th century. He is remembered as one of the Kings in South Wales who were so hounded by King Anarawd of Gwynedd and the sons of Rhodri Mawr (the Great) in the 880s, that they were forced to submit to the overlordship of King Alfred the Great of England in order to secure their safety.
