  • The Anglian Collection 4.5 of 5 stars
    This Collection of Anglo-Saxon royal genealogies was defined and printed as a group by David Dumville in Anglo-Saxon England 5 (1976), 23-50. He recognised that the genealogies incorporated into the Historia Brittonum derived from an earlier version of this collection, but did not include them. I have combined all four versions in tabular form to make comparisons easier.

  • The Annales Cambrie Version A 4.5 of 5 stars
    Another great Latin text by Keith Matthews This text exists in three very different versions. The popular publication of ‘Nennius’s’ Historia Brittonum (edited by John Morris) includes a version that conflates the earliest text (Harleian MS 3859, otherwise known as ) with the others, but only up to the point at which Version A stops recording events. The text of Version A posted here is based on the much better text printed by Egerton Phillimore in Y Cymmrodor 9 (1888), 141-83.

  • Jesus College MS 20 4.5 of 5 stars
    Closely related to the Harleian genealogies are those from Jesus College MS 20, folios 33r to 41r, by Keith Matthews. Drawing on the same body of material, they contain variants and additions that suggest that they do not derive from them; there are links where the two traditions over the same ground. However, the Jesus College genealogies are much later in date than the Harleian and therefore rather less reliable. They were printed in Y Cymmrodor 8 (1887), 83-9.
