(Redirected to Tutagual of Alt Clut article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tutagual (Welsh: Tudwal) is thought to have been a ruler of Alt Clut (modern Dumbarton Rock), later known as Strathclyde, a Brythonic kingdom in the Hen Ogledd or "Old North" of Britain. He probably ruled sometime in the mid-6th century.

The Harleian genealogies, Adomnán's Vita Columbae, and the Bonedd Gwŷr y Gogledd indicate that Tutagual was the father of the much better known Rhydderch Hael, presumably his successor.[1] The Harleian genealogies name him as the son of Clinoch son of Dumnagual Hen, probably his predecessors as king.[2] Tutagual of Alt Clut may be identified with a tyrannical ruler mentioned as Saint Ninian's contemporary in the 8th-century poem Miracula Nyniae Episcopi and in Ailred of Rievaulx's 12th-century Vita Sancti Niniani. The Miracula calls this king Tuduael and Thuuahel, while Ailred gives the forms Tudwaldus and Tuduvallus.[1]
