Meirchion Gul, King of Rheged
(c.438-535)

(Welsh-Meirchion, Latin-Marcianus, English-Mark)

Meirchion the Lean, presumably a very slim man, was the son of Gwrast Lledlwm. He succeeded his father as King of a united Rheged, though he lost Elmet to his younger brother, Mascuid. Upon Meirchion's death in about 535, the Kingdom was divided between his two sons.
