Rhodri, King of Dyfed
(Latin: Rodericus; English: Roderick)

Rhodri was the youngest son of Hyfaidd, and last King of an Independent Dyfed. He appears to have ruled his father's kingdom for only a year after the death of his brother, Llywarch in 904. He was executed in Arwystli, probably at the behest of Hywel Dda (the Good) of Seisyllwg who married his neice and took over the Kingdom as King of a united Deheubarth.

Records of King Rhodri date back to the 10th century. He is an historic personage.
