Title:Wikipedia's King who Doesn't Exist

Enhance your browsing experience by trying out Opera today: Wikipedia has picked up some infamy over the years for being a less-than-reliable resource. But when discussing Wikipedia mistakes, people are usually expecting some uncited information, some inaccuracies, or maybe some bias. I imagine that very few would be expecting the invention of a king who doesn't actually exist. Throughout Wales' history, there have been plenty of enigmatic figures, but apparently none more so than the subject of this video, Anwn Ddu, or Annun Ddu, a supposed king of Gwent and Dyfed in Wales that doesn't appear to be connection to a single source. Welsh history is already an underserved topic, prone to coverage littered with mistakes, and Wikipedia articles being wrong like this one don't help, so today I'm looking to correct another part of Wales' history, and set the record straight on Wikipedia's Welsh king who doesn't exist. Chapters: 0:00 - The King that Doesn't Exist 1:37 - Anwn Ddu 4:41 - Wikipedia Sources 7:35 - Annun ap Macsen Wledig, King of Dyfed 11:06 - Ynyr ap Dyfnwal ap Ednyfed, King of Gwent 14:28 - Antun Du, King of Greece Sources (turn on captions): Bartrum, P.C.
