DAFYDD ap MAREDUDD ap TUDUR (fl. 1460), of Tregynon, Mont., one of the less prolific poets of the second half of the 15th cent.
Name: Dafydd Ap Maredudd Ap Tudur
Place: Tregynon, Mont.
Area of activity: Poetry
Author: Rhiannon Francis Roberts
His compositions include eulogies of Hywel Colunwy (not of Hywel ap Siencyn), Dafydd Deuddwr, Watcyn ap Tomas ap Rhoser, and Dafydd ab Owain, abbot of Strata Marcella, and poems of a religious nature. It appears from the contents of ‘Tebic ywr byd kyngyd kaeth’ that towards the end of his life he became blind.
