Aneirin is one of the earliest Welsh poets, although whether he actually lived or is just a figure of legend will forever be disputed. He flourished in what is now the border region between England and Scotland. Although no poetry can be positively ascribed to him, he is considered in Welsh legend to be one of Wales’ greatest poets.
