Custennin

Welsh - A giant shepherd, in Welsh lore. Son of Anlawdd, some say. Brother of Ysbaddaden. Father of Erbin, Goreu and Igraine. It was said that he could burn a tree merely by breathing on it. He had been deprived of his rightful inheritance by his brother and worked as a shepherd. All of his twenty-four sons, except Goreu, had been killed by Ysbaddaden and he was therefore willing to help Culhwch in his quest to marry Olwen, which would result in the death of Ysbaddaden. His wife was an aunt of Culhwch. Also known as Custennin.
Welsh - The Welsh form of Constantine. In some accounts, called Custennin.
