Gwragedd Annwn

Gwragedd Annwn~
Gwragedd Annwn
on her boat in wales 
Good evening my dear Friends & Followers I have a wonderful tale of an welsh water faerie Gwragedd Annwn. I hope you might stop by to have a good read when you have some time in your busy days..  They legend starts as this my dears ~ Once there was an legend of an submerged town in one of the many lakes in Wales near the Black Mountains. Some have said it was to be the home of Gwragedd Annwn. They say the people of Wales that live near these lakes have seen Towers and rooftops beneath the surface of the water. Plus if your lucky on a beautiful clear sunny day, they can even hear the bells from the towers below the depths of the lake. The tale of the water faerie Gwragedd Annwn is an wonderful story and to many they believe that it is true and is still very much alive today as do I! The Gwragedd Annwn or Gwrageth anoon are the welsh water faeries that live in the beautiful lakes of wales. These water faeries maidens that live on and in these lakes all over wales will occasionally take on an mortal husbands to live with inside their beautiful castle beneath the lake. Well there is one well-known legend that tells of a young man who used to graze his cattle by a small lake near the Black mountains. One day he saw a most enchanting creature rowing gently to and fro in a golden boat on the surface of the lake. He fell deeply in love with her and offered her some of the bread he had brought from home for his midday meal. She answered that the bread was too hard and disappeared into the depths of the lake. The young mans mother gave him some unbaked dough to take with him the next day and he offered this to the faerie of the lake, but when she appeared from the lake, she answered that it was too soft and again disappeared into the depths of the lake. Finally on the third day his mother gave him some lightly baked bread, and after the beautiful Gwragedd Annwn appeared from the lake and tasted the bread it did indeed passed. Suddenly three figures rose from the lake, an old man with a beautiful daughter on either side of him. The girls were identical and the father told the young farmer that he was willing to offer him the daughter with whom he was in love with if he could point her out. Well, the farmer would have given up in despair , but one slightly moved her foot and he; recognized  her slipper, won her hand.
The Faerie Gwragedd Annwn
The water-faerie was given a fine dowry and they lived together happily. However, the young farmer had been warned that he would lose his beautiful wife should he ever strike her three times cause by even the smallest strike. So the farmer thought nothing of that because he would never strike his beautiful wife. But after a few years had went by, it so happened that even though they were indeed blissfully happy; His wife the Gwragedd Annwn had some curious faeries traditions, she might weep at a wedding or laugh and sing at funerals of a child and this eventually led to her loving husband reproving her three times more by a love-tap than a blow, but this was enough in her family's eyes to force her to leave him. She did not forget her sons that she had with the farmer and taught them many secrets of medicine so that they became famous physicians of the mortal world. I hope that you all Enjoyed the tale  of the Faerie of the lake. I hope to bring you more
