Bernicia

;ref name Blair_IASE_42-5 Hunter Blair, ''An Introduction'', pp. 42–45. By about 470 a new kingdom of Gododdin had emerged covering most of the original Votadini territory, while the southern part between the Tweed (River Tweed) and the Tyne (River Tyne) formed its own separate kingdom called Brynaich (Bernicia). Cunedda, legendary founder of the Kingdom of Gwynedd in north Wales, is supposed to have been a Gododdin chieftain who migrated south-west about this time. Both kingdoms eventually fell to the Angles of Bernicia; it is this warfare that is commemorated in Aneirin's late 6th early 7th century poem-cycle ''Y Gododdin''. During antiquity most of the area was part of ''Brigantia'' — homeland of the Brigantes and the largest Brythonic (Britons (historical)) kingdom of Great Britain. After the Roman conquest of Britain the city of York became capital of the area, called Britannia Inferior then Britannia Secunda. In Sub-Roman Britain new Brythonic kingdoms of the ''Hen Ogledd'' emerged. The Angle (Angles) settlers created Bernicia and Deira from which came Northumbria (Kingdom of Northumbria) and a Golden Age (Northumbria's Golden Age) in cultural, scholarly and monastic activity, centred around Lindisfarne and aided by Irish monks. The south-east had been absorbed by the English (England) Kingdom of Bernicia Northumbria (Bernicia) in the seventh century. Galloway in the south west was a Lordship with some regality. In a Galwegian (Galwegian Gaelic) charter dated to the reign of Fergus (Fergus of Galloway), the Galwegian ruler styled himself ''rex Galwitensium'', King of Galloway. Oram (2000) p. 62 In the north east the ruler of Moray (Mormaer of Moray) was called not only "king" in both Scandinavian and Irish sources, but before Máel Snechtai (Máel Snechtai of Moray), "King of Alba". For Findláech (Findláech of Moray), ri Alban, ''Annals of Ulster'', ''s.a.'' 1020; Anderson (1922) vol. i, p. 551. For Máel Coluim (Máel Coluim of Moray), ''Annals of Tigernach'', ''s.a.'' 1029; Anderson (1922) vol. i, p. 571. The ''Annals of Tigernach'' though styles Findláech merely ''Mormaer''. thumb right A digital reconstruction of Anglo-Saxon Yeavering created by Past Perfect, a project run jointly by Durham and Northumberland County Councils. (File:Yeavering Digital Image.jpg) In the Early Mediaeval period, Yeavering was situated in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Bernicia. Hope-Taylor 1977 (#Hop77). p. 16. Welsh tradition regards Rhydderch as one of the northern British kings who fought against the early Anglo-Saxon (Anglo-Saxons) realm of Bernicia. The ''Historia Brittonum'' depicts him as an enemy of several Bernician kings of the late sixth century, but the theatre of the wars between them is not identified. It is said he joined with Urien of Rheged and Morcant Bulc in their ill-fated alliance: In 629 (629 inIreland), the Dal nAraide appear to have defeated the Dál Riata at Fid Eóin, killing Connad Cerr, although the victor is named as Maél Caích, perhaps an otherwise unknown brother of Congal. AU 629.1; AT 631.1; Mac Niocaill, pg.95, Byrne, pg.109 As well as their king, the Dál Riata suffered the loss of two grandsons of Áedán mac Gabráin and the Bernician exile Osric (perhaps a son of Æthelfrith (Æthelfrith of Bernicia)) was also killed. It is possible that upon becoming King of Ulaid, Congal resigned the affairs of Dal nAraide to Maél Caích mac Scandail who met opposition from other Criuthne led by Dícuil mac Echach who may have been a member of the Latharna of Larne (a Dal nAraide tribe).
