5th & 6th Century Timeline of Britain


From the departure of the Romans from

Britain to the establishment of sizeable

Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms


410 - Emperor Honorius of Rome tells Britain to attend to its own affairs. Zosmius reports Roman officials expelled and native government establishes "independence".

Circa 410 - Governor Owain Finddu of Glywysing (Cardiff & Glamorgan area) is assassinated in Gwynedd (North Wales). Irish incursions into Gwynedd (North Wales), Powys (Mid Wales), Garth Madrun, Dyfed (South West Wales) & the Gower Peninsula (South Wales Swansea).

411 - Capture, at Arles, of Constantine, last Emperor of Britain. He was executed at Ravenna soon afterward.

413 - Pelagian heresy said to have begun, by Prosper (Tiro) of Aquitaine in his "Chronicle".

420 - Pelagian heresy outlawed in Rome (418) but, in Britain, supposedly enjoys much support from "pro-Celtic" faction. Traditionalists (pro-Romans) support Roman church. During this time, according to Prosper, Britain is ruled by petty "tyrants".

Circa 420 - Death of Coel Hen, probably the last Roman Dux Brittanniarum. The lands of his office in Northern Britain are divided between his descendants and become petty kingdoms of the "Gwyr y Gogledd".

421 - Supposed death of King Gradlon Mawr of Brittany. Probable division of Brittany into sub-kingdoms of Cornouaille and Domnonée.

Circa 423 - Birth of St. Patrick in Banna Venta Burniae, thought to be near Birdoswald.

425 - Vortigern usurps Imperial power in Britain, possibly as High-King.

Circa 425 - Cunedda Wledig and his retinue are moved south from Manau Gododdin to Gwynedd (North Wales) in order to expel the invading Irish.

Circa 425-50 - King Conomor flourishes in Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines), probably from his capital at Castle Dore.

428 - Vortigern invites a number of Germanic warriors to aid him in consolidating his position in Britain according to the Historia Brittonum. This appears to have been an early use of German mercenaries, who probably settled in the Dorchester-upon-Thames area.

429 - At the request of Palladius, a British deacon, Pope Celestine I dispatches Bishops Germanus of Auxerre and Lupus of Troyes to Britain to combat Pelagian heresy. While in Britain, Germanus, a former military man, leads Celtic Britons to "Hallelujah" victory on the Welsh border. St. Cadfan founds the Monastery of Barsdey (Island off the coast of Lleyn Peninsula, North Wales).

Some traditions claim Bardsey Island to be Avalon)

Circa 434 - St. Patrick is captured by pirates and taken to Ireland as a slave.

435 - Tibatto leads Armorican movement for independence from Roman Gaul.

Circa 435 - War breaks out between the Irish settlers in Garth Madrun and Powys (Mid Wales). King Anlach of Garth Madrun is defeated and forced to send his son, Brychan, as a hostage to the Powys (Mid Wales)ian Court.

437 - Ambrosius Aurelianus appears as leader of the Pro-Roman faction in Britain (traditionally returning from exile in Brittany). Vortigern's apparent relative, Vitalinus (Guitolinus), fights against Ambrosius (King Arthur’s Uncle) at the Battle of Wallop. The latter is probably victorious and is "given all the kingdoms of the western side of Britain".

Circa 437 - The Irish chieftain, Triffyn Farfog takes the Kingdom of Dyfed (South West Wales) by marrying the daughter of King Clotri.

Circa 440 - St. Patrick escapes from his captors and returns to Britain.

Circa 440-50 - Period of Civil War and famine in Britain, caused by ruling council's weakness and inability to deal with Pictish invasions; situation aggravated by tensions between Pelagian/Roman factions. Vacated towns and cities in ruin. Migration of pro-Roman citizens toward west. Country beginning to be divided, geographically, along factional lines. King Glywys of Glywysing (Cardiff & Glamorgan area) flourishes in Glywysing (Cardiff & Glamorgan area).

Circa 440-90 - King Brychan flourishes in Brycheiniog (Brecon). His three wives give birth to many saintly children who evangelize Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines). One tradition maintains that Brychan was the father of Merlin the Magician.

Circa 441 - Gallic Chronicle records, prematurely, that "Britain, abandoned by the Romans, passed into the power of the Saxons."

443 - Death of King Constantine Corneu of Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines). His kingdom was divided between his two sons as Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines) and Cerniw.

446 - Celtic Britons (probably the pro-Roman party) appeal to Aetius, Roman governor of Gaul, for military assistance in their struggle against the Picts and the Irish/Scots. No help could be sent, at this time, as Aetius had his hands full with Attila the Hun.

Circa 446 - Vortigern authorizes the use of Saxon mercenaries, known as foederati, for the defence of the northern parts against attack by the Picts and to guard against further Irish incursions. The Saxons are given a little land in Lincolnshire.

447 - Second visit of St. Germanus (this time accompanied by Severus, Bishop of Trier) to Britain. Was this visit spiritually motivated, to combat a revived Pelagian threat or was Germanus sent in Aetius' stead, to do whatever he could to help the desperate Celtic Britons? Vortigern is accused of incest. Battle of Aylesford (Kent) in which the rebellious sons of Vortigern, Vortimer and Cadeyrn, defeat Hengest for the first time. Cadeyrn is killed in the fighting. Germanus expells the Irish from Powys (Mid Wales) and restores Cadeyrn's son, Cadell Ddernllwg, to the throne.

Circa 447 - Celtic Britons, aroused to heroic effort, "inflicted a massacre" on their enemies, the Picts and Irish, and were left in peace, for a brief time. Could this heroic effort have been led, again, by St. Germanus?

Circa 448 - Civil war and plague ravage Britain.

Circa 450 - In the first year of Marcian and Valentinian, Hengest arrives on shores of Britain with "3 keels" of warriors, and are welcomed by Vortigern. This event is known in Latin as the "Adventus Saxonum," the Coming of the Saxons or the Dawn of the Saxon Age.

Circa 452 - Increasing Saxon settlement in Britain. Vortigern marries Hengest's daughter, Rowenna, and supposedly offers the Jutish leader the kingdom of Kent. Hengest invites his son, Octha, from Germany with "16 keels" of warriors, who occupy the northern lands, to defend against the Picts. Picts never heard from, again.

Circa 453 - Raids on British towns and cities becoming more frequent. Increasing Saxon unrest.

455 - Prince Vortimer apparently rebels against the pro-Saxon policies of his father, Vortigern, and fights Hengest at the Battle of Crayford. Hengest is victorious and the British army flees back to London.

456 - The indecisve Battle of Aylesford between Hengest's Saxons and the British under Prince Vortimer. Prince Cadeyrn of Britain and King Horsa of Kent are killed in the fighting.

Circa 456 - St. Patrick leaves Britain once more to evangelise Ireland. Geoffrey of Monmouth tells us of a probably fictitious, but entirely believable, event in which Saxons massacre 300 leading British noblemen at a phony "peace" conference.

Circa 458 - Saxon uprising in full-swing. Hengest finally conquers Kent, in south-eastern Britain.

Circa 458-60 - Full-scale migration of British aristocrats and city-dwellers across the English Channel to Armorica, in north-western Gaul (the "second migration"). British contingent led by Riothamus (perhaps a title, not a name).

Circa 459 - Vortigern is burnt to death while being besieged by Ambrosius Aurelianus at Ganarew.

Circa 460-70 - Ambrosius Aurelianus of pro-Roman faction takes full control of Britain; leads Celtic Britons in years of back-and-forth fighting with Saxons. British strategy seems to have been to allow Saxon landings and to then contain them there.

464 - Supposed death of the legendary King Aldrien of Brittany.

465 - Battle of Wippedsfleet (or Richborough), in which the Celtic Britons defeat the Saxons, but with great slaughter on both sides. The latter are confined to the Isle of Thanet and there is a respite from fighting "for a long time."

Circa 465 - 'King' Arthur probably born around this time. Birth of St. Dyfrig also.

Circa 466-73 - Period of minimal Saxon activity. Re-fortification of ancient hillforts and construction of the Wansdyke possibly takes place during this time.

Circa 469 - Roman emperor, Anthemius, appeals to Celtic Britons for military help against the Visigoths. Reliable accounts by Sidonius Apolonaris and Jordanes name the leader of the 12,000 man Breton force, Riothamus. The bulk of the British force was wiped out in battle against Euric, the Visigothic king, and the survivors, including Riothamus, vanished and were never heard from, again.

Circa 471 - The army of King Ceretic of Strathclyde raids the Irish Coast and carries off some of St. Patrick's new flock and sells them into slavery. The king receives a written repremand from the Irish Evangelist.

473 - Men of Kent, under Hengest, move westward, driving Celtic Britons back before them "as one flees fire."

477 - Saxon chieftain, Aelle, lands on Sussex coast with his sons. Celtic Britons engage him upon landing but his superior force besieges them at Pevensey and drives them into the Weald. Over next nine years, Saxon coastal holdings are gradually expanded in Sussex.

Circa 480 - King Erbin of Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines) abdicates in favour of his son, King Gerren LlygesoCirca  Death of King Glywys of Glywysing (Cardiff & Glamorgan area). His kingdom is divided into Gwynllwg, Penychen, Gorfynedd, Edeligion and others.

493 - Death of St. Patrick, in Glastonbury according to local legend. Down Patrick seems more likely.

Circa 495 - The Germanic King Cerdic and his son, Cynric, land somewhere on the south coast, probably near the Hampshire-Dorset border. Their followers establish the beginnings of the Kingdom of Wessex. King Gwynllyw of Gwynllwg carries off Princess Gwladys of Brycheiniog (Brecon). War between the two kingdoms narrowly avoided by the intercession of the legendary Arthur. The couple marry.

Circa 496 - The Siege of Mount Badon. Celtic Britons, under the command of the "war leader" Arthur, defeat the Saxons, under King Esla of Bernicia and possibly Cerdic of Wessex.

Circa 496-550 - Following the victory at Mt. Badon, the Saxon advance is halted with the invaders returning to their own enclaves. A generation of peace ensues. Corrupt leadership, more civil turmoil, public forgetfulness and individual apathy further erode Romano-British culture over next fifty years, making Britain ripe for final Saxon "picking."

497 - Birth of St. Cadog. Death of King Erbin of Dumnonia (North Yorkshire Pennines).

Circa 500-17 - King Cadwallon Lawhir expels the Irish from Anglesey (North Wales).

Circa 515 - Death of Aelle. Kingdom of Sussex passed to his son, Cissa and his descendents, but over time, diminished into insignificance.

517 - Death of King Cadwallon Lawhir of Gwynedd (North Wales). His son, Maelgwn takes the throne, murders his uncle, probably King Owain Danwyn of Rhos (North Wales Conwy Valley), and re-unites the two kingdoms.

Circa 538 - King Cynlas Goch of Rhos (North Wales Conwy Valley) abandons his wife in favour of his sister-in-law, a nun who he drags from her convent.

546 - St. Gildas returns to Brittany with St. Cadog.

547 – King Morgan Bulc of Bryneich /Bernaccia  is expelled from his fortress of Bamburgh by the Angle King Ida who renames the kingdom Bernicia. Morgan Bulc is forced into exile and the events of his 50 year campaign to regain his kingdom may have contributed to the King Arthur Legend.
