  • Note:
    Son of Magnus Maximus, Antonius Donatus Gregorius (Anwyn Dynod in Welsh although he was Roman) was King of South Wales (Demetia) from 382 to c. 400, according to the following:


    The British kingdom based on the Celtic tribal territory of the Demetae, and its subsequent Roman civitatus designation, was apparently created in circa.382 by one of the many sons of Magnus Maximus. It certainly bore the Romanised form of its name throughout the 4th and 5th centuries. Its early centre was at Castell Dwyan. Its first king, Antonius, was charged with protecting the southern half of Wales in much the same way as Cunedda was given Gwynedd as King of North Wales. Some of the territory he controlled was passed to younger sons, but which territory is not clear. The core of his holdings, however, was Demetia.

    Irish raiders were causing the British widespread problems throughout the 4th and 5th centuries, and to combat this, The homeless Deisi tribe were settled in Demetia by Magnus Maximus. Existing evidence confirms this by suggesting the Roman authorities asked for the help of Aed Brosc in keeping Irish pirates away from the western coast of Britain. When the last British king died without a male heir, the Deisi were on hand to fill the breach. [Post-Roman Celtic Kingdoms website, tia.htm]
