Individual:


Gorlois (Gwrlais in Welsh) may have been a governor of Cerniw (Cornwall), the western portio n of Dumnonia, under King Erbin. His historicity is confirmed by the evidence of place-names such as Carhurles (Caer-Wrlais) and Treworlas (Tre-Wrlais). Late pedigrees, attributed to Iolo Goch, suggest he was a descendant of Gerdan, a younger son of King Solor of Cernyw (Glywysing). It may either be through coincidence or confusion that Gorlois' ancestry stems from Cernyw (Glywysing), while he lived in Cerniw (Cornwall).
