Parent: Maredudd
Gender: Male
Occupation: rebel
Area of activity: Anti Establishment

He was the leader of the Glamorgan insurgents during the rising of Madog ap Llywelyn in 1294-5. Owing to personal grievances against the De Clares, he claimed to be at war only against the lords of Glamorgan. He may, therefore, have been Morgan ap Maredudd, a direct descendant of Rhydderch ap Iestyn; his father, Maredudd, the last native lord of Caerleon, had been deprived twenty years earlier by Gilbert de Clare. He has also been described in one contemporary chronicle as Rhys ap Morgan, which suggests some confusion with Rhys, the younger son of Morgan Fychan ap Morgan Gam. Morgan submitted to the king in July 1295, and obtained the royal clemency. His daughter, Angharad, was an ancestress of the Morgan family of Tredegar family. See Morgan ap Hywel for Maredudd.
