No details are known of his life. There is in the parish of Llangwm, Denbighshire, a place named Aeddren, of which Bedo Aeddren was a native. It appears that Hywel, too, may have lived there. It is not known whether any connection existed between the two poets. A few of his cywyddau exist in manuscript, but it is impossible to assess his dates from them.
