Cynan ap Maredudd
He is recorded in the Welsh chronicle Brut y Tywysogyon as having jointly led the revolt in Deheubarth with Maelgwn ap Rhys (died 1295), but this seems unlikely given his known activities were confined to territories well to the north of those of Maelgwn. He is known to have besieged Builth Castle, and also attacked the castle at Cefnllys. After the collapse of the revolt in the summer of 1295, he was captured, apparently at Hereford, and executed.
