Teirnyon

Welsh - A farmer, Lord of Gwent. Watching a mare foal, he saw a clawed hand appear through the window and grab the young colt. He cut off the hand with his sword and went out of the stable expecting to find a dragon. He saw nothing but found a baby abandoned on the doorstep when he re-entered the stable. He and his wife reared the baby as their own, calling him Gwri. When they discovered that he was the son of Pwyll and Rhiannon they returned him to his parents who called him Pryderi. In some accounts, referred to as Teirnyon, Teyrnon, Teyrnon, Tiernon, Tiernon, Turf Liant or Turf Liant.
