Arthuis, King of the Pennines
(born c.455)

(Welsh-Arthwys, Latin-Artorius, English-Arthur)

In the late 5th century, Arthuis succeeded his father, King Mor of Greater Ebrauc (York), in the southern area of his Kingdom: the Pennine region of today. He was probably a contemporary of the great High-King Arthur of romantic legend, and stories of the latter's exploits in the north may well be a muddled memory of this Northern King, who is thought to have fought against the Picts on numerous occasions. He was eventually succeeded by his son, Pabo Post Prydein.
