Annwfn

Welsh - The underworld ruled by Arawn; The Otherworld. In Welsh lore this realm is described variously as a group of islands or a revolving castle set in the sea, or as being anywhere on, over or under the sea, but is always a land of pleasure where neither disease nor death are known. Other stories locate Annwfn in Wales, adjoining the kingdom ruled by Pwyll, or in Scotland or somewhere in the far North.
