Welsh Festival for Arianrhod
The daughter of Don, Arianrhod was said to have been present during the Count of King Math ao Mathonwy. The King was steeped in his traditions. One of them being his need of having a Virgin. The Virgin’s job was simple. Hold his feet in her lap when he was lucky enough to not be away at War. Unfortunately, in this story, his regular foot-holding Virgin, Goewin, was raped by Gilfaethwy. To cover up her brother’s crime, Arianrhod agreed to take Goewin’s place. The problem was, she wasn’t a Virgin and the moment she stepped over the King’s magic wand to prove an non-existance state of virginity, she went right into labor giving birth to two sons.
The story leads to more sadness. She curses one of her sons who was then raised by another brother, named Gwydion. The tale is thick with interest if you are ever looking to read a soap opera deep in Welsh lore.
