The Battle of Din Eidyn (modern Edinburgh)
Cunedda, Prince of the Gododdin has intercepted a force of Saxons and Picts who have raided Bryneich (Bernicia) and now threaten his own lands. He has appealed to his fellow Britons from over the wall and the men of Elmet have come to his aid from the fortresses at Eburacum and Cataractonium. As a cold harsh easterly blows through their ranks, fluttering the British Dragon standards unfurled in defiance the Britons stand together as the raiders advance under a grey sky. The Saxons are led by their Cyning, Aelle and the Aetheling Octha.
The Kingdom of Gododdin was a Roman influenced British Kingdom North of the Wall in modern Lothian, with its capital at Din Eidyn (Edinburgh). It was a wealthy Kingdom that thrived in the Late Roman and post Roman period. Famed for its proud warriors and poetry they are best known as the subject of the 6th-century Welsh poem Y Gododdin, which memorializes the Battle of Catraeth (Cataractonium) and is attributed to Aneirin.
Cunedda, legendary founder of the Kingdom of Gwynedd in north Wales, is supposed to have been a Manaw Gododdin warlord who migrated southwest during the 5th century. It is the subject of conjecture but the Romans had a great tradition of transferring successful warrior peoples to parts of the Empire that needed defending against barbarians; in this case North Wales against the Irish.
