Llawdden (or Ieuan Llawdden) (fl. 1440-1480) was Welsh language poet and a priest.

Llawdden composed poems to many prominent noble families.

Perhaps Llawdden’s greatest claim to fame is his inauguration in the Eisteddfod held at Caerfyrddin attended by Dafydd ab Edmwnd. In 1451 at the Carmarthen Eisteddfod, he accused Gruffudd ap Nicolas of being bribed to give the chair to Dafydd ab Edmwnd.[1]
