Author: Leslie Harries

son of Huw Cae Llwyd, born in all probability in Brecknock. He did not write much in the way of poetry and, as he himself avers, laid ho claim to being a great poet. In 1475 he accompanied his father to Rome. He sang the praises of Sir Thomas Vaughan (see under Vaughan of Bredwardine) but it is obvious that his poems are, for the most part, mere exercises and that he was not as competent a poet as his father.
