St. Meirchion
(Born c.AD 496)
(Welsh: Meirchion; Latin: Marcianus; English: Merin)

St. Meirchion was a prince of Rhos, the youngest son of King Owain Danwyn. Like his brother, St. Seiriol, he entered the religious life. He lived as a hermit just north of Rhydlios where the remains of ' St. Merin's Church' can still be seen today. This was in the kingdom of another brother, Einion of Lleyn. He should not be confused with St. Merin from Bodfelin on Ynys Mon (Anglesey) or with King Meirchion of Meirionydd.
