LLYWARCH LLAETY ( fl. c. 1140-1160 ), one of the poets of the period of the Welsh Princes .

A series of englynion in praise of Llywelyn ap Madog ap Maredudd of Powys remain in MSS. It is also probable that he was the same person as the poet Llywarch y Nam , of whose work another series of englynion to the same prince is found.
