Notes for Rognavald "The Rich" Jarl of More:
Rognavald fought alongside the future king Harald Finehair in establishing a united Norway. harold married Rognavald's sister Swanhilda. during this civil war many Norwegians were driven out of Norway and settled in the Shetlands and Orkney,called the Nordreys by the Norse,which they used to attack Norway and Norse ships. The traditional view is that around 874 Harald sent Rognavald
to the Hebrides to bring these islands under his authority. During the expedition Rognavald's son,Ivar,was killed. As a consequence,once Rognavald had conquered the islands,Harald granted them back to him in recompense for his son. The more recent view is that Rognavald may have set out earlier on the expedition to conquer the Nordey pirates himself and worked in league with Olaf The White,who was the Norse king of Dublin. According to this view Olaf granted Rognavald the Orkneys around the year 871 or earlier. However,Rognavald had no desire to remain in the isles so in 875 Rognavald gave the islands to his brother Sigurd,and returned to Norway where he continued to fight on behalf of the king. This created enemies and around the year 894 he was burned alive in his hall by two of Harald's sons by another wife.

Notes for Hywel "Dda" Ap Cadell,King of Deheubarth:
Hywel is recorded as a regular visitor to the court of the kings of England. On some occasions ,as in 918 and 927,these were meetings called by the Saxon kingsin order to resffirm their suzerainty and to seek fealty from the other rulers of Britain. At times he attended the English court as a friend,often to witness charters,and took the opportunity to study how the administration and jurisdiction operated. Though it may go too far to say he was an Anglophile,he did christen one of his children with an English name,Edwin,and the English ability to organize clearly appealed to him. He had the good sense to understand what well and could respect the English way of life. This was further amplified after his pilgrimage to Rome in 928. It had a profound effect upon him ,not simply in the religious sense,but in recognizing the benifits that could come to a well organized Kingdom,which he witnessed in France and Rome. In 942 his cousin,Idwal ap Anarawd of Gwynedd,was killed in battle against the Saxons.
The land passed to Hywell,he was now ruler of most of Wales,with the exception of the south-east. Hywel took this opportunity to organize and consolidate the many tribal laws af the land. In 945 he held a great conference and three law books were established the laws of Gwynedd,Deheubarth and Morgannwg. By codifying these laws,Hywel did more towards unifying the Welsh as a nation than any other ruler had sought to achieve by conquest and domination.
So Paramount was Hywel in his role as King and Lawgiver that he was also the first and only Welsh Prince to issue his own coinage. When Hywel died in 950,probably in his late sixties,he left behind a legacy that would long be remembered as a golden age in Welsh history.
