Freebase

  1. Llŷr

    Llŷr is a figure in Welsh mythology, probably originally a deity. He appears as the father of Brân, Brânwen and Manawydan by Penarddun in the Branwen, Daughter of Llyr, the Second Branch of the Mabinogi. The Welsh Triads states that Llŷr was imprisoned by Euroswydd, and presumbably, Penaddurn consequently married Euroswydd, giving birth by Euroswydd to her two younger sons, Nisien and Efnisien, as stated in the Second Branch. Other than his progeny and odd tidbits, his identity remains obscure. Llŷr is thought to be cognate to Lir, father of the sea-god Manannán mac Lir from Irish mythology, and through this association Llŷr himself is conjectured to be a sea god. William Shakespeare's play King Lear is based on material taken secondhand from Geoffrey of Monmouth's mythical king King Leir, which in turn may derived from Llŷr.
