British & Welsh Kingdoms

"On Mynyddawg's orders shields were splintered,
Sword-blades fell on white faces,
Battle they loved, generous in warfare;
they bore no shame, men stood firm."
- Aneirin, Y Gododdin.

The British & Welsh Kingdoms were situated on the fringes of the old Roman Britannia, were the hold of Rome was weakest and the old British & Welsh ways survived the longest. Many kingdoms were small and could barely muster a warband let alone an army. Inter-kingdom raids were common as were raids into Romano-British and Saxon territory but if a strong leader could be found, the kingdoms would work together to resist Saxon expansion.
