Neithon, King of Strathclyde
(Died c.AD 630)
(Welsh: Nudd; Latin: Natanus; English: Nathan)
Neithon succeeded St.
Constantine - the grandson of his cousin, Tutugual - as King of
Strathclyde. He is sometimes identified with King Nechtan of the Picts
but, for complicated inter-relational reasons, this is unlikely. The two
were, however, contemporaries. Neithon died about AD 630 and was succeeded
by his son, Bili.
