AKA: Arfyrag, Bran, Cassivellaunus, Gweirydd, Arviragus Gwenivyth & Gweirydd
King of Silures 44-74
BIOGRAPHY: *Arviragus was a 2nd cousin of *Caradoc. He succeeded his brother Guiderius,a Kin g of Britain, 44 A.D., who died in 74 A.D. He was a Druid king, converted to Christ


Taking command of the British forces on the death of his brother Guiderius, Arvirgu s emerged victor from a major skirmish with Claudius' troops. He eventually ruled the British as Rome's puppet-king, being interred in the city of Gloucester. British warriors at that time were famed for their ability to fight whilst standing on the pole of the chariot, and Arviragus was particularly adept at this as a certain Roman author testified: "Either you will catch a certain king, or else Arviragus will tumble from the British chariot-pole." Cassivelaunus. It was this king who withstood, in the year 55 BC, the invading armies of Julius Caesar. Arviragus was starved into submission after betrayal by Androgeus, his brother Lud's eldest son. The British resistance, however, had been great and fierce, evoking from the Roman author Lucan much praise concerning one particular engagement : Territa quaesitis ostendit terga Britannis, when Caesar fled in terror from the very Britons whom he'd come to attack!".The leader of the resistance to Caesar in both of his British campaigns. Cassivellaunus possibly formed the tribe later to become known as the Catuvellauni from a federation of smaller like-minded Belgic tribes living north of the Thames, specifically to counter Caesar.
The next identifiable ruler of the Catuvellauni was Tasciovanus who came to power, though wh ether he was the son or grandson of Cassivellaunus is not known. [It is possible that Cassivellaunus should be translated as 'Vellaunus of the Cassi', i.e. his tribe was the Cassi and his name was Vellaunus. It follows that the name given to the amalgamated tribe gathered under his command could mean 'the Followers1 or Smiters2 of Vellaunus'. 1 Latin caterva crowd, troop, company, flock. 2 Gaelic cath to smite.]

Tradition says he returned to Wales and established the royal line from with the legendary King Arthur was descended. It is claimed that he was the King who welcomed Joseph of Arimathea to Britian in 63 b.c. and granted him land at Flastonbury for his church.

Reigned 44 Ad-74 Ad. Lived In Avalon (Glastonbury). 74 Ad The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotlan d by Prince Michael of Albany,Published by Element of Boston, Massachusetts, page 423. The Mammouth Book of British Kings and Queens, page 76: "Only one classical reference exists to Arviragus and that is in a poem by Juvenal which calls Arviragus a "black bull", probably meaning his strength and his dark flowing hair, as he rode his chariot recklessly through the Roman streets terrifying Nero. There is a strong Welsh belief that Arviragus, or Gweirydd, was the king of the Silures who joined forces with Caratacus (possibly his brother) against the Romans. He was captured alongside the Catuvellaunian chief and taken to Rome where he was also pardoned. Tradition states that Arviragus returned to Wales and established the royal line from which King Arthur was descended. Arviragus is treated as the king who welcomed Joseph of Arimathea to Britain in about 63 and granted him land at Glastonbury for his church. The date of 67 has been assigned to his death on the basis of the Welsh genealogies. Geoffrey of Monmouth extends the independence of Arviragus, making him a tribute-paying king who marries the daughter of the Emperor Claudius. Through the friendship of Claudius, Arviragus is installed as ruler of Britain and the city of Glouchester is built. Arviragus later defends Britain from an invastion by Vespasian and dies in old age, much loved and honoured. According to Geoffrey he was succeeded by his son Marius."
