Welsh - A Welsh goddess of spring, daughter of Lludd or Llyr. She was promised to Gwythyr but was carried off by Gwyn. They fought a pitched battle over her until King Arthur intervened. He decreed that the two should fight for the maiden each May Day until the end of time, the final winner to have her for his wife. In some accounts she is equated with Cordelia. Some say that her father was Llyr, others that Gwyn was her brother. Also commonly called Creiddylad, Creidylad, Creidylad, Creudilad, Creudilad, Creudylad or Creudylad.
