Cynfyn, King of Ergyng
(Died c.AD 615)
(Latin: Conbinus; English: Convin)
Little is recorded of the reign of
Cynfyn ap Peibio, though there are
indications that his rule may have been a joint one, along with his
brother Gwyddgi. He does feature in a couple of the Llandaff Charters.
His name appears in a land grant to Bishop Aeddan
and also in a charter associated with Bishop Elwystl. Cynfyn had at least
one son, Gwrgan, but upon his death,
around AD 615, the throne was seized by a usurper named Gwrfoddw.
