Snowdonia is rich in history as it is beauty, but there also seems to be many myths and legends that go along with this fascinating place.
The Legend of Rhita Gawr
At one time, there were two kings in Britain; Nynniaw and Peibiaw. One night, they were both riding through the country, under the stars, and Nynniaw said:
“Look at the vast and beautiful land I have.”
“Where is it?”, asked Peibiaw.
“This whole area”, answered Nynniaw.
“You look how many cows and sheep I have grazing your land”.
“All of the stars you see”, said Peibiaw, “in the fiery gold of every one of them and the moon is their shepherd, leading them”.
“They cannot stay on my land”, said Nynniaw.
“Yes they can”, replied Peibiaw.
And then, the situation deteriorated and a war was announced between them both. Rhita Gawr, king of Wales heard about the quarrel between the two kings and decided to put an end to it by attacking both kings. Rhita succeeded to conquer and kill them and cut off their beards.
