Mascuid Gloff, King of Elmet
(Born c.AD 440)
(Welsh: Masgwid; Latin: Mascuidius; English: Maximilian)

Mascuid the Lame was the second son of King Gwrast Lledlwm of Rheged. He appears to have inherited the southern portion of his father's Kingdom in the late 5th century, and thus probably became the first independant King of Elmet or Elfed as its is sometimes called. His capital may have been at Campoduno (Leeds), though it is possible that this was the centre of a separate sub-kingdom called Loidis.
