St. Wenna the Queen
(c.AD 472-544)
(Latin: Genuissa; English: Gwen)

Her name in Welsh is simply, Gwen. St. Wenna (the Cornish version of her name) was the daughter of Lord Cynyr Ceinfarfog of Caer Goch, the wife of King Salom of Cerniw and mother of St. Cybi. She founded the church of Morval (near Duloe) in Cerniw (Cornwall) and apparently died in 544. She should not be confused with her contemporary, St. Wenna of Talgarth, whose church was at St. Wenn.
