Pryderi is one of the main characters in the Welsh national epic, The Mabinogion. He was born the son of Pwyll and Rhiannon, but he disappeared immediately after his birth, taken by a mysterious power to the court of Teyrnon Twrf Liant, where he was named Gwri Wallt Eurin and fostered for four years. He was enormously strong as a child, like Heracles.
When Teyrnon realized who the child's parents were, he returned him. He was renamed Pryderi by his mother. He grew up handsome, fair and master of all manly arts, and succeeded his father as king-prince of Dyfed.
