LLYWELYN ab EDNYFED ( fl. c. 1400-1460? ), poet ;

the same person, apparently, as one called Llywelyn ap Maredudd ab Ednyfed in some MSS. All his extant work is vaticinatory poetry. The date 1400 is given, together with one copy of a poem by him, in N.L.W. MS. 6499 ; another poem, definitely composed in 1460 , is attributed to him (amongst various other poets) in some MSS. Apart from the above no other dates are available.
