Nightbringer | The Arthurian Online Encyclopedia


A hound needed by the warrior Culhwch, as one of tasks, to hunt the boar Twrch Trwyth. Other tasks required that Culhwch find certain people to manage Aned and another hound, Aethlem.

Arthur helped Culhwch obtain the hound for the hunt. After the hunt, Aned could not be found and was never seen again.
