book year

; ref Gildas, writing in about 540, says that Maximus left Britain not only with all of its Roman troops, but also with all of its armed bands, governors

, and the flower of its youth, never to return. Having left with the troops and Roman administrators, and planning to continue as the ruler of Britain in the future, his practical course was to transfer local authority to local rulers. The earliest Welsh genealogies give Maximus the role of founding father for several royal dynasties, including those of Powys (Kingdom of Powys) and Gwent (Kingdom of Gwent).

that ''genau'' can mean "son" or "descendant" or even "a member of the royal retinue". There are also claims that the Welsh poet and genealogist Gutun Owain wrote about Madoc before 1492. However, Gwyn Williams in ''Madoc, the Making of a Myth'', makes it clear that Madoc is not mentioned in any of Gutun Owain's surviving manuscripts.

At the village centre is the parish church of St Tysilio and St. Mary which occupies a very large site. In addition, in common with many Welsh villages, there are a number of Nonconformist chapels with the village and its catchment area. The village has one pub, the King's Head and a convenience store (with a post office),. In 2006

portrayal

that, if the traditional identification of the site as Oswestry is correct, Oswald was on the offensive, in the territory of his enemies. This could conflict with Bede's saintly portrayal of Oswald, since an aggressive war could hardly qualify as a just war, perhaps explaining why Bede is silent on the cause of the war—he says only that Oswald died "fighting for his fatherland"—as well as his failure to mention other offensive warfare Oswald is presumed to have

engaged in between Heavenfield and Maserfield. Stancliffe, "Where Was Oswald Killed?", argues in favour of the traditional identification of the site with Oswestry. For Stancliffe's argument regarding Bede's portrayal of Oswald as fighting only just wars, Bede's attempt to portray Maserfield as being part of a just war (being fought ''pro patria''), and his omission of previous aggressive warfare Oswald is thought to have engaged in, see p. 93. Oswald may have had

of the Norman forces, Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, known as "Strongbow", followed in 1170. According to Warren: The traditional identification of the battle site with Oswestry, probably in the territory of Powys (Kingdom of Powys) at the time, suggests that Penda may have had British allies in this battle, and this is also suggested by surviving Welsh poetry which has been thought to indicate the participation of the men of Powys in the battle. It has also been considered

Merfyn inherited Powys, whilst his brothers, Anarawd ap Rhodri and Cadell, established the Aberffraw dynasty in Gwynedd and the line of Dinefwr respectively. In 942 Hywel Dda of Deheubarth (Rhodri's grandson through his second son, Cadell) seized Gwynedd on the death of his cousin, Idwal Foel. He

Kingdom of Powys

thumb right 250px Powys landscape near Foel (Image:Wales Powys landscape near Foel.jpg) The '''Kingdom of Powys''' was a Welsh (Wales) successor state (succession of states), petty kingdom and principality that emerged during the Middle Ages following the end of Roman rule in Britain. Based on the Romano-British (Romano-British culture) tribal lands of the Ordovices in the west and the Cornovii (Cornovii (Midlands)) in the east, its boundaries originally extended from the Cambrian Mountains in the west to include the modern West Midlands (West Midlands (region)) region of England in the east. The fertile river valleys of the Severn (River Severn) and Tern (River Tern) are found here, and this region is referred to in later Welsh literature (Welsh-language literature) as "the Paradise of Powys".
