Llyr is a Welch deity that was thought to be a sea god. He was the leader of one of two warring families of gods. The children of Llyr were the powers of darkness and were constantly in conflict with the children of Dôn, the powers of light. His children, by Penarddun, were Brân, a god of bards and poetry; Brânwen, the wife of the sun god Matholwch, and Manawydan.
