      Cynan ab Iago
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
      Cynan ab Iago (c. 1014 – c. 1063) was a Welsh prince of the House of Aberffraw sometimes credited with briefly reigning as King of Gwynedd. His father, Iago ab Idwal ap Meurig, had been king before him and his son, Gruffudd, was king after him.

      Iago was King of Gwynedd from 1023 to 1039 but was
      killed (possibly by his own men) while Cynan was still
      young. The throne was seized by Gruffydd ap Llywelyn, a
      member of a cadet branch of the royal dynasty. Cynan fled to
      Ireland and took refuge in the Viking settlement at Dublin.
      He married Ragnhilda, the daughter of its King Olaf
      Sigtryggsson and granddaughter of King Sigtrygg Silkbeard.
      Ragnhilda appeared on the list of the "Fair Women of Ireland" in the Book of Leinster and was also descended
      from Brian Boru.
      Cynan may have died fairly soon after the birth of their son Gruffudd, as the 13th-century History of Gruffydd
      ap Cynan details Cynan's ancestry but omits him from its account of Gruffudd's youth. Instead, Gruffudd's
      mother tells him about his father and the patrimony he should claim across the sea.[1] Following two major
      Saxon invasions under Harold and Tostig Godwinson, Gruffydd ap Llywelyn was killed in 1063: the later
      Welsh Brut y Tywysogion reported he was done in by his own men, while the Ulster Chronicle stated he was
      killed by Cynan ab Iago. This may account for later records in Gwynedd calling Cynan a king or, alternatively,
      it may simply have been an honorary title on account of his family. If Cynan ruled, it was very briefly, for
      Bleddyn ap Cynfyn was installed by the Saxons the same year.
