The Britains, lost to the Romans,

This date of 441 is clearly up to ten
years too early for the ‘traditional’

invitation by Vortigern and the
subsequent revolt, which Bede dated
at 446-7, and later at 455

and that one month had passed since
Badon which would date Gildas'

Who was Taliesin?

This historical Taliesin, it is
thought, was probably born in Powys,
as demonstrated by the poems to Cynan
Garwyn king of Powys (also of this
time period). Based on the content of
the LT, it is thought that later he went
to the court of Urien of Rheged in the
north; many of the poems in the LT are
praise poems to Urien and his son Owein
(the Uriens and Yvain of Arthurian Romance).

Review

731 ADReview731 AD

Dear Student
6th - 12th grade

Thus far Gildas has mentioned Ambrosius
and Bede has mentioned Ambrosius.
Gildas and Bede lived appx. 100+ years apart.
Is Bede using Gilda's work or some other
when he writes about Ambrosius?
In the text cited above they
both use the word 'modest'.
Coincidence?
At this point in time there
is no Arthur legend as we know it today.

The Battle of Mount Badon is
a big deal because:
-- It stopped the Anglo-Saxons
-- Ambrosius led the British
-- The EXACT date of the battle is not clear

At this point in time Taliesin
and Aneirin are both dead.
But their poems both mentioned
a person named Arthur.
Is their Arthur - Ambrosius?

Some may argue that their poems
were (written/edited) 00's of years later
by imposters. Lets take the high
road and accept their veracity.
Can you determine if they lived when
Ambrosius was fighting the Anglo-Saxons?

Finally, lets thicken this stew.
A guy named Nennius shows up 00's
of years later and lists 12 battles
that Arthur fought in.
Click on this link to see the battles.

If you have become convinced that Ambrosius
is 'THE GUY', be sure to click on Arthur
in the Dropdown to view other candidates
and round-out your knowledge of the subject.
