Guoremor, King of Dumnonia
(Born c.AD 358)
(Welsh: Gwrfawr; Latin: Vorimorus; English: Vorimer)

Guoremor is traditionally said to have succeeded his father, Gadeon, probably as a major landowner in the Civitas Dumnoniorum. He may have also held a high rank in the Roman administration of the area. Guoremor could have been the first of his family to take advantage of the withdrawal of Imperial troops from Britain and raise himself to the Kingship of Dumnonia. He will have died about AD 415.

Records of King Guoremor date back to the 10th century. He is generally considered apocryphal.
