Caernarfonshire, Beddgelert - Llewellyn Hotel

Caernarfonshire, Beddgelert - Llewellyn Hotel in the 1890's.

Beddgelert - Bedd meaning grave, and Gelert the name of a hound.

The legend tells of Prince Llewellyn, who left his baby at home in the care of Gelert - his faithful hound. When Llewellyn returned, the baby and his cot were nowhere to be seen, and Gelert the hound was covered in blood. In a rage, Prince Llewellyn took out his sword, and with one mighty blow slayed Gelert. A baby's cry broke the ensuing silence, and Llewellyn ran to the place, to find his baby safe in his cot, and beside him a large wolf - dead.

Realising that Gelert had fought the wolf and killed it to save his son, Llewellyn was distraught, and carried the body of Gelert to a sweet meadow, burying him under a tree, and placing a boulder as a marker. This grave may be visited today.
