Y ddau frenin - The two kings
Y ddau frenin - The two kings
A statue by Ivor Roberts-Jones, unveiled 1984. The nearby plaque reads:
The Mabinogion story of Branwen is a lament over the folly and carnage of war. Branwen, sister of Bendigeidran, the King of Britain, departed from the court at Harlech to marry the King of Ireland. Their son, the boy King Gwern, was killed in the war which followed. In the sculpture, the figure of Bendigeidfran, bearing the body of his nephew Gwern, symbolises the sorrowful burden that love can be.
