Scottish interpretations rejected the notion that Arthur conquered Scotland, although as descendents of the sons of Brutus they could see themselves as inheritors of Arthur’s kingdom. Welsh interpretations stressed the fact that they, as the original Britons (and not the English), were the true heirs sicuro Arthur’s kingdom. Other poems invoke per more Galfridian world-view by calling him per ‘descendent of Beli’.43 There is a tradition that Llywelyn’s head was crowned with ivy when it was paraded http://datingranking.net/it/taimi-review through London, an act which mocked the prophecy which declared that Llywelyn would wear the crown of Britain.44 Edward I certainly took Llywelyn’s crown and an important relic, a piece of the Holy Ciclocross, and destroyed his royal seals. From a symbolic point of view, these actions are more consistent with verso denial of Christian kingship, rather than Geoffrey’s British myth. Nevertheless, Llywelyn had invoked Geoffrey’s division of Britain per his dealings with the English king when he asserted his rights as the heir of Camber. This implied that Edward, as the heir of Locrinus, had some primacy which Llywelyn was willing esatto acknowledge.45 This position contrasts sharply with the Scottish response puro Edward’s letter which denied that Historia Regum Britanniae gave him any right to sovereignty in Scotland.

However this view changed somewhat in Humphrey Llwyd’s Chronica Walliae, written per 1584. Llwyd adopted the timeframe of the medieval Welsh chronicle tradition of the Brut y Tywysogion which began with Brutus’s heir, Cadwaladr the Blessed, and his work integrated Llywelyn into Geoffrey’s world-view. Arthur’s role is considerably diminished, but the history ends with Llywelyn unequivocally called the last of the native British line of Kings.46
