Rhodri Mawr ap Merfyn married Angharad ferch Meurig, daughter of Meurig ap Dyfnwallor (?). Stewart Baldwin states that - a fourteenth century manuscript) gives Angharad ferch Meurig as the wife of Rhodri Mawr, and is the earliest known source to mention Angharad. Patrick Sims-Williams has argued persuasively (in SW) that Angharad is a late invention, and I find his arguments convincing. (The main problem is that JC, the earliest source for this and other marriages, shows a disturbing tendancy to have suspiciously convenient sisters marrying just the right people, suggesting invention.) The same arguments apply to Rhodri's alleged mother Nest of Powys (below, #2049). Since Angharad probably never existed, the supposed line of descent from the kings of Ceredigion which has been traced through her is probably not valid.
     Rhodri died in 878 in Wales. Gwynedd was always the primary kingdom of Wales, even though it has moments when it was dominated by rulers from the south. It had several great rulers during its early years but the first to earn the title "the Great" was Rhodri ap Merfyn who by 871 had inherited Powys (855) and Seisyllwg, in addition to Gwynedd, and was effectively ruler of all northern and western Wales.

The evidence cited in the Mortimer article of CP (vol. 9, p. 271) does seem to make it clear that these two Matildas are the same woman, and that she is a sister of Alice and Avice.

Maud le Meschin* coheiress (after death of her brother) her inheritance included the manor of Molland, Devon. She was witness to Philip de Belmeis' charter founding Lillieshall Abbey, co. Salop - therein styled 'domina Matilda filia Willelmi Meschin' (CP Vol IX -Mortimer, p. 271n)[1]

Edmund de Mortimer,was holding at his death in 1304, 3 carucates in Wheatenhurst, Gloucs., the manor of Mappowder, Dorset, and one knight's fee in Molland, Devon. These places occur in the list of benefactions made by Robert de Rumilly to the abbey of Troarn. In addition, the Mortimers were holding other former le Meschin properties in Kimbolton, Hunts., Great Billing, Northants., and Great Caldy, Cheshire.[EYC VII, p.7-9]
> Another related DD error is that on p.777 the heirs of Gundreda de
Warenne d.1224 are stated to be her daughters Joan de Neville and Margery de Breaute. They were in fact her granddaughters being the daughters of Gundreda's daughter, Alice de Curcy, by William III de Curcy of Stogursey. Alice was married first to Henry de Cornhill d.1193, by whom she had Joan, married to Hugh de Nevill, the Forester d.1234. Alice was married secondly to Warin fitz Gerold d.1216, by whom she had Margaret, married first to Baldwin de Redvers d.v.p.1216, and secondly to Faukes de Breate.
