You can spot Rhiannon galloping about Wales on her sturdy white steed. You probably won't be able to catch up to her, though, since her horse is totally magical and can run faster than any normal four-legged creature. When she's not sprinting around, she loves spending time with her son, Pryderi. As queen of Dyfed, Rhiannon doesn't mind toting her crown and scepter around—even though her daughter-in-law now holds the role.
At the court of Dyfed in Arberth
Queen of Dyfed
I learned how to ride horses—and rule—from the gods of Wales!
I love being a queen!
My father is Hefaidd Hen; I don't know my mother.
Pryderi; my daughter-in-law, Cigfa
Pwyll, my singing birds
Gwawl, the magic bowl that froze me. Not cool.
Married first to Pwyll, king of Dyfed (his name means "good judgment," which he showed by marrying me); then married to Manawydan (a.k.a. Manannan mac Lir)
