Princess Dwynwen was the beautiful daughter of the king of south Wales - King Brychan Brycheiniog. When she was forbidden to marry the man she loved, she ran away and became a nun. She devoted the rest of her life to helping other lovers find happiness.
Dwynwen became the Welsh patron saint of love. She’s celebrated each year on St Dwynwen’s Day, 25 January, the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine’s Day.
