    Cunedagius (Welsh: Kynedda) was a legendary king of the Britons as account ed by Geoffrey of Monmouth. He was the son of Henwinus, Duke of Cornwal l, and Regan, the daughter of King Leir.

    Cunedagius, grandson of Leir, despised the rule of his aunt Cordelia. Wi th the help of his cousin Marganus, Cunedagius took over the kingdom fr om Cordelia and ruled half of it. Following Cordelia's suicide, Cunedagi us came to rule the region of Britain southwest of the Humber.

    Two years after they split the island, Marganus invaded Cornwall and destr oyed much of the land. Cunedagius met him in battle and defeated him. Marg anus fled throughout Britain until he was cornered in Wales. Cunedagius ki lled him and became king of all of Britain. He ruled all of Britain f or 33 years and was succeeded by his son, Rivallo.
