Meirchion Gul, King of Rheged
(c.438-535)
(Welsh: Meirchion; Latin: Marcianus; English: Markian)

Meirchion the Lean, presumably a very slim man, was the son of Gwrast Lledlwm. He succeeded his father as King of a united Rheged, though he lost Elmet to his younger brother, Mascuid. Upon Meirchion's death in about AD 535, the Kingdom was divided between his two sons, Cynfarch Oer and Elidyr Llydanwyn.
