Llaenawc, King of Elmet
(Welsh-Llaennog, Latin-Lennocus, English-Leonard)
Llaenawc was the son of King Masguid Gloff (apparently of Elmet). John Morris has suggested that he was the founder of an early
6th century British Kingdom based on Lennox in Southern
Scotland: the man giving his name to the town (See Morris 1973).
There is, however, no evidence to support this theory, and the
association of his son, Gwallawc Marchawc Trin, with Elmet would indicate that this was
Llaenawc's real kingdom.
