DYFED (OF THE DEISI)
The Irish Deisi (or Déssi) tribe of the County Waterford region in Ireland, were settled by the existing Roman authorities in the Demetian region by 382. Their leader, Aed Brosc, was one of his people's key figures. His grandfather, Eochaid Allmuir, had been forced to leave his homeland after a bid for independence failed, and was severely crushed by the Irish High King. The descendants of Aed’s eldest son, Urb, founded the Kingdom of Brycheiniog between 420-450, while his younger son, Triffyn Farfog, married the heiress of the Demetian Kings. Like most Irish Royalty, Eochaid claimed descent from Beli Mawr, the Celtic Sun-God, through his son, Miled.
The name Dyfed (also known as Dyfor) originates from one of the former Roman civitates within the kingdom, and seemed to be more popular for the new Deisi rulers than Demetia. The early Deisi settlers were very receptive to the bonuses of the Roman way of life, and gave their children Romano-British names. These were recorded by the Early Welsh in Welsh format, and later rulers became completely Welsh in background as the Roman influence was severed. The Deisi rulers of Dyfed initially used the Roman title of "Protector" (protictoris) instead of the British equivalent of king. This practice continued at least as far as Vortipor, whose memorial stone was discovered at Castell Dwyran.
