Stag of Rhedynfrc

Stag of Rhedefre, Stag of Rhedenfre

The Stag of Rhedefre was the second “wise animal” that Arthur’s warriors encountered on their quest to find the imprisoned warrior Mabon.

Having been directed to this animal by the Blackbird of Cilgwri, the party helping Culhwch in his search for Olwen were passed on to the Owl of Cwn Cawlwyd, which, in turn, took them to the Eagle of Gwernabwy, which finally took them to the Salmon of Llyn Llw.
