Arianrhod and Llcw LLaw Gyffcs

Dylan Eil Ton

Math then began to look for a new footwarmer. Gwydion suggested that he ask his sister Arianrhod. She came to court and said that she was a virgin, but when she stepped over Math's wand she gave birth to two children. One of them Math named Dylan Eil Ton (Seaborn, son of the Wave) and fostered. Dylan was amphibious and had toad-eyes, eventually forsaking the land entirely for the sea. The other child Gwydion fostered. But she didn't kill him, for nine months later she gave birth to Gwion. Ceridwen put the baby into a bag and threw him into a stream, from which he was rescued by Elffin, prince of Gwynedd. Elffin raised the foundling, naming him Taliesin, shining brow, because of his wisdom. At the age of 13 he was able to confound all the druids and wise men of Gwynedd, dazzling them with his wisdom and prophecies and putting a spell on them so that all they could say was wub-a-wubble (the sound a child makes pulling his lower lip with his fingers). Taliesin was recognized as the...

Yellow Book of Lecan One of three

The Sunken City

Much like the mermaid of Celtic tales, she seduces Gradlon and convinces him to help her kill her husband, the elderly King of the North. Gradlon kills the old fairy king and fills a chest with his gold. To return to his kingdom, Malgven and Gradlon ride on the back of the King of the North's fairy steed Morvac'h, which gallops across the waves. They meet up with the boat with the king's warriors and continue their travels by sea until a violent storm drowns the crew and sends Gradlon and Malgven far off course. For a year they wander the ocean, finally arriving within sight of the king's castle. At this point, Malgven dies as she gives birth to their daughter. Grief-stricken, the King retires to his castle with only his daughter for comfort.

Women Warriors And Rulers

Other Celtic myths describe such female military goddesses as Agrona (the Welsh battle goddess of strife and slaughter), Andraste (the Gaul goddess of victory and war), and Feldelm Noichrothach (warrior daughter of Conchobar mac Nessa). Cymidei Cymeinfoll, the Welsh goddess of war, healing, and procreation, gave birth to a fully armed warrior every six weeks. She also had the power to revive dead or wounded warriors by dipping them in her magic cauldron, a process that made them whole but also robbed them of the ability to speak. The terrifying MoRRiGNA were three war goddesses named Badb, Macha, and Morrigan. They roamed the battlefields, causing chaos to their enemies. Nemain was another Irish war goddess who badgered men on the battlefield and shape shifted into a crow to mock her dead enemies.

Plate Viii Squatting

That his wife was swifter than the horses, whereupon King Conchobar insisted that she should be sent for, and though she was with child, forced her to run against his chariot. She said that all who saw it would suffer for the deed, and when at the goal she gave birth to twins, she condemned every Ulster-man to undergo for five days and four nights each year all the pangs which she had felt, and to have no strength during that time. Cuchulainn alone escaped the curse.13

Red Man of All Knowledge Celtic god

Pryderi and Rhiannon After Pwyll and Rhian-non had been married for three years, the fair Rhiannon finally announced that she was with child. This news brought great joy to Pwyll and his people, who had feared he would never produce an heir to the throne. On the night that she gave birth, Rhian-non was isolated from the rest of household with six women attendants. After a long and difficult labor, Rhiannon gave birth to a son. She fell into a happy but deep sleep. The attendants, who were supposed to be watching over Rhiannon and her newborn child, also fell into a deep sleep. Meanwhile, in a nearby household, a man named Tayrnon and his wife were discussing the strange disappearance of their newborn foal. Every year on the festival of Imbolc, their mare would give birth, and every year, the foal would mysteriously disappear during the night. This year, Tayrnon was determined to catch the thief. He lay in wait, holding a sword to his chest, on the night that the horse was due to foal....

Holy Groves and Temples

Imbolc was sacred to the goddess Brigid. or Bregheda, whose name may have meant High One. Brigid was associated with healing, childbirth, smithing, fertility, and poetry she had been worshipped for a very long time. Some stories called her a daughter of the Dagda others said she was mother to all the gods she was at least the mother of the son of Tureen (p. 119). She ate nothing but milk from Otherworldly cows and sheep, and had the powers of increase she could take an empty vessel and fill it to overflowing. She bore the title Mother of the Flocks, could ease animal and human childbirth, was said to have tamed wild boars, and was also associated with fish. She was clearly an important pastoral goddess.

MACHA The wife of Nemed

He boasted that she could outrun a horse even in the final hours of her pregnancy. She won the race and gave birth to twins at the finish line. Thereafter, the place was known as Emain Macha, which means twins of Macha. Macha was so furious at the men of Ulster who laughed at her struggle that she cursed the next nine generations of Ulstermen to suffer the pains of childbirth for nine days. This curse kept the warriors of Ulster from fighting against Medb's armies in the story Tain Bo Cuailnge (The Cattle Raid of Cooley) with fateful consequences for Cuchulainn.

Thg Tain

One day Maeve was in bed with Ailell when he claimed that he had more possessions than she did. They got out of bed and compared everything, and they were equally matched except for a magnificent white bull in Ailell's herd. Maeve demanded a bull as fine the only one to be found was the Dun Bull of Cooley (Cuailgne), in Ulaid. Maeve made this the excuse for a full-scale invasion (the Tain Bo Cuailgne), knowing that the bull would be undefended as the men of Ulaid were overcome with the Pangs of Macha (see p. 35), as helpless as women in childbirth.

Hem Dtsadoantages

You are an adult male native of Ulaid who bears the curse of Macha (see Emain Mocha, p. 35). Whenever Ulaid is invaded, for five days and four nights you suffer a pain equivalent to that a woman feels in childbirth. A Will roll must be made in order to do anything at all, and all your skills are at -8. Even those accustomed to bearing wounds bravely are laid low by this pain, and a Will roll must be made to refrain from crying out.

Sources And Problems

'Virgin' (virgo or og) also presents uncertainties. The word described at least two sorts of women those unmarried women who were simply sexually inexperienced, and those women who had taken up the religious life (and who might or might not be physically 'intact'). Fortunately it is only rarely hard to ascertain whether the authors were referring to holy women or to unmarried lay-women. But the early medieval Irish on occasion also used the virginal terms for nuns who had actually had sex with men. Thus the extent of the biological basis of the virgin's status must remain an uncertainty. The virgin represented the highest level of female sanctity, and it was virgins who were female saints. But females who had borne children might also be saints and occasionally got counted as holy virgins on this account for example, on a list of noeb-huaga (holy female virgins) one finds 'Eithne, mother of Columcille'. Eithne is but one of several women saints who gained a place amongst the 'holy...

Bran And The Magic Cauldron

Branwen was the daughter of Llyr, the Welsh equivalent of the Irish sea god LIR, and sister to BRAN THE BLESSED, and MANAWYDAN. When High King MATHOLWCH of Ireland came to Bran's court at Harlech it was agreed that Branwen should be given to him in marriage. But her half-brother EFNISIEN was not consulted and, feeling insulted, he cut off the lips, ears and tails of Matholwch's horses. To restore peace Bran offered the Irish king replacement horses and a magic cauldron. Matholwch returned to Ireland with Branwen, who was at first received with great rejoicing for she was generous with gifts, and before long she gave birth to a son, GWERN. But after a few years Matholwch's friends and family began to complain that the compensation he had received from Bran was not enough. To satisfy them, Matholwch insisted that Branwen relinquish her position as queen and become a cook for the court. CALATIN, in Irish mythology, was a misshapen druid of FOMORII origin who was said to have studied...


The Furies Greek Mythology

The- twin sons of rhea silvia and mars, and the two founders of Rome. Rhea Silvia had been the only child of King Numitor of Alba Longa. When Numitor's brother amulius deposed him, he also forced Rhea Silvia to become a Vestal Virgin, thereby ensuring that there would be no other claimant to the throne. But the war god Mars raped her in his sacred grove, and Rhea Silvia gave birth to Romulus and Remus.

Sacred Snakes

In Celtic symbolism, the snake represented concepts evoked by its particular properties snakes are essentially earthbound creatures who can slide in and out of impossibly narrow crevices in rocks and disappear below ground. Their carnivorous nature and the venom of some species must have led to their being regarded with fear and awe. The Old Testament vilifies snakes, linking Eden's serpent unequivocally with evil, condemned by God to eat the dust of the earth and to be shunned by all other creatures because of its sullying of humankind. Snakes possess the curious habit of sloughing their skin several times a year, being apparently 'reborn' in the process. They are fertile creatures the male has a multiple penis, and the female gives birth to a prodigious number of young. Moreover, the very physical shape of the snake evokes the image of the phallus. Finally, the sinuous, rippling movement of the reptile as it flows along the ground has a resemblance to water and the river meandering...

Bnan and lDnanuJGn

Cauldron Druid

When nine months were past Branwen gave birth to a son, and he was called Gwern. As was the custom, Gwern was fostered among the high-ranking warrior families of Ireland. In Ireland there were only five pregnant women left alive, living in a cave in the wilderness. In one night these five women gave birth to five sons, and they nursed these sons until they grew to manhood. Then each of the five young men took the mother of one of his companions as a wife, and so they repopulated the country, seeking out gold and silver from the great battle fields and becoming wealthy. And it is from these original five that the land of Ireland has its five zones or counties today.

Dermot See Diarmait

The Hunting of the Magic Boar When Diarmait was a boy, his mother gave birth to a child by a man other than her husband. Diarmait's father, Donn Ua Duibne, was furious. In a jealous rage, he killed Diarmait's infant half brother. But the child's natural father brought him back to life in the form of a boar. The magic boar was ordered to kill Diarmait in revenge for Donn's act. The boar haunted Diarmait for many years, though it never managed to kill him.

Iron Age people

Iron Age Scotland

Perhaps the most striking features of the Isbister population were their low life expectancy and high levels of child mortality. Most of those surviving to puberty died before reaching 30 and only a few individuals could hope to reach 50 (most of the latter being men. the rigours of childbirth evidently adding to the stresses on the female population).This would have had profound effects on the ways in which communities were structured the population would have been young, with children probably working in the fields and tending the flocks and herds at an early age. Since old age was a relatively rare achievement, it is probable that the elderly commanded respect and perhaps held a venerated status. The composition of individual households would have been quite varied and probably based on extended rather than nuclear families, due to the unpredictable loss of individuals of all ages through disease and injury.
