      The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland 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."
