Meirchion Gul, King of Rheged
(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.
