Iolo Morganwg
Edward
Edward
Williams, better known by his bardic name Iolo Morganwg ([ˈjɔlɔ mɔrˈɡanʊɡ]; 10 March 1747 – 18 December 1826), was an influential Welsh antiquarian, poet, collector, and literary forger.[1][2] In his day he was widely considered a leading collector and expert on Medieval Welsh literature, but after his death it was revealed that he had forged a number of his manuscripts, especially parts of the Third Series of Welsh Triads.[3] Nonetheless, he had a lasting impact on Welsh culture, seen most notably in his foundation of the Gorsedd, and the philosophy he developed in his forgeries had a huge impact on the early neo-druid movement. His bardic name is Welsh for "Iolo of Glamorgan" (the county's name is spelt "Morgannwg" in modern Welsh)
