British - Son of Greidwl. Brother of Gwyn ap Nudd, some say. Gwyn carried off Creiddylad, the intended bride of Gwythyr, who raised an army to recover her but was defeated in battle. King Arthur intervened, making peace between them and decreeing that Creiddylad should be returned to her father, Lludd, and that the two suitors for her hand should fight each other every May Day until the end of time, the final winner to keep the woman. Some say that he was also a member of the party that accompanied Culhwch in his quest for the hand of Olwen. At times, identified as Gwythyr.
