- Budic II, King of Brittany
(Welsh-Budig, Latin-Budicius, English-Budick)
Not to be confused with his uncle and namesake , Budic was called by his title, Emyr Llydaw (Emperor of Brittany) by the Welsh. He apparently married the sister of High-King Arthur <http://www.britannia.com/history/h12.html> of Britain. The lady is usually assumed to have been Anna <http://www.britannia.com/history/biographies/morgause.html>, but there are indications that Elaine <http://www.britannia.com/history/biographies/elaine.html> (Elen) was his true wife. He is thus, probably, the original of King Nentres (a corrupt form of Emyr) who was mistakenly given the realm of Anna's husband, Garlot (Caer-Lot). He may also be connected with the literary King Ban of Benwick (sometimes Brittany). It was probably during his cousin 's usurpation of the Breton throne that Budic fled to Britain, along with his father and the Breton fleet. They took refuge at the court of King Aircol Lawhir of Dyfed, where he met and married his second wife, Anowed, the sister of St. Teilo. The two settled in Britain and lived there for many years during which time Anowed gave birth to two sons. During her third pregnancy though, messengers arrived announcing that the Breton King (probably the childless Rivod) was dead and that his people desired Budic to be their King. So he returned in triumph to a kingdom that became known as Cornouaille Budic in his honour. It was during Budic's reign that, an old legend says, Breton armies first became invincible on horseback. During a visit of St. Teilo to Brittany, Budic, his brother-in-law, persuaded the saint to rid his lands of a terrible dragon that was terrorising the countryside. With much prayer, Teilo was able to subdue the beast and he tied it to a rock in the sea. Afraid that it would return without Teilo's protection, Budic created his brother-in-law the Bishop of Dol. Teilo entered the city upon a divine white steed given him by an angel. This, he later presented to the King with the promise that his cavalry would always be victorious in battle. Budic may have ruled jointly with his son, Hoel I Mawr (the Great) in his later years. He eventually died in 545, having left his grandson and heir, Tewdwr, in the care of King Macliau of the Vannetais.
