  Research Notes:

From Dictionary of National Biography, vol. XII, p. 1015:

"Maredudd [ap Owain]'s only son, so far as is known, died before him. But so great was the prestige he acquired in his brief reign that his daughter, Angharad, was regarded, contrary to ordinary Welsh custom, as capable of transmitting some royal right to her descendants. Her first husband, Llywelyn ap Seisyll [q. v.], ruled Gwynedd from about 1010 to 1023, their son, the well-known Gruffydd ap Llywelyn [q. v.], from 1039 to 1063. By her second marriage with Cynfyn ap Gwerstan she had two other sons, Rhiwallon and Bleddyn, of whom the latter, with no claim on the father's side, ruled Gwynedd and Powys from 1069 to 1075 and founded the mediaeval line of princes of Powys. [Annales Cambriae, Rolls ed. The dates given above are nearly all approximate.] J. E. L. [John Edward Lloyd]"

Source at http://www.gencircles.com/users/kristinhopper/4/pedigree/7137 gives Angharad's parents as Maredudd ab Owain and Asritha.


Angharad married Cynfyn ap Gwerstan, son of Gwerstan and Unknown.


Angharad next married Llywelyn ap Seisyll Prince of N Wales, King of Deheubarth & Gwynedd, son of Seisyll ap Ednowain and Prawst verch Elise, in 994. (Llywelyn ap Seisyll Prince of N Wales, King of Deheubarth & Gwynedd was born about 980 in <Rhuddlan, Flintshire>, Wales and died about 1023.)
