Guoremor, King of Dumnonia
(born c.AD 358)

(Welsh-Gwrfawr, Latin-Vorimorus, English-Vorimer)

Guoremor succeeded his father, Gadeon, probably as a major landowner in the Civitas Dumnoniorum. He may have also held a high rank in the Roman administration of the area. He was probably the first of his family to take advantage of the withdrawal of Imperial troops from Britain and raise himself to the Kingship of Dumnonia. He will have died about AD 415.
