Gwrast Lledlwm, King of Rheged
(Born c.AD 422)
(Welsh: Gwrast; Latin: Gurgustus; English: Fergus)

Gwrast the Ragged, the son of King Ceneu of Northern Britain, was ruler of a huge Kingdom that covered the whole modern North-West England. It stretched from Hadrian's Wall above Caer-Ligualid (Carlisle) all the way down to Campoduno (Leeds) in Midland Britain and Caer-Legion (Chester) in the East. He ruled in the mid 5th century, but nothing else is known of him. His epithet is intriguing.
