Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed – Celtic Mythology

Pwyll, the prince of Dyfed was on a magic mound at Arbeth when he noticed a beautiful young woman sitting upon a white horse riding along very slowly even though no one could catch up to her. Pwyll, called out to the mysterious beautiful lady and the horse stopped dead in its tracks. She told Pwyll that she was Rhiannon the daughter of Hefeydd the Old and that she was being forced against her will to marry. Pwyll and Rhiannon wanted to marry one another. They planned to meet again in one year and one day at Hefeydd’s home to be married.

During the wedding ceremony, Pwyll was so excited about the wedding and his soon to be bride that when a stranger came up to him and asked for a boon, Pwyll replied, “name it and it is yours”. The stranger was none other than Gwawl, the son Clud, and the unwelcome suitor that Rhiannon had not wanted to marry before. He asked for Rhiannon’s hand in marriage in one year with another feast. Pwyll had to stand by his word so he agreed. However, Rhiannon had another plan.

In one year everyone once again arrived at Hefeydd’s court. This time Pwyll came dressed as a beggar carrying a large bag and asking for food. Rhiannon had placed a magic spell on the bag in which it could not be filled. Finally out of frustration, Gwawl placed both of his feet into the bag. As soon as he did this, Pwyll tied the bag in a knot. He then blew his horn and his men came forth. Pwyll told the men that a badger was inside the bag and they began to beat the bag and then threw him out of the court. At this time, Pwyll and Rhiannon were married before returning to Arberth.
