Kadeir Teÿrnonverse beg. Araith awdyl eglur
- Middle Welsh
A Welsh poem in the Book of Taliesin, where it is headed Kadeir Teÿrnon. The text has been notoriously resilient to an easy interpretation. One line of interpretation suggests that the poem begins by eulogising an unnamed hero, descendant of a certain Aladur, that his identity gradually emerges through a series of narrative allusions and that towards the end of the poem, the subject is finally revealed to be Arthur.

renowned British poet, known both as a historical poet at the court of Urien and other rulers and as a more fictionalised persona of supreme status. Poems attributed to him survive in the 14th-century manuscript now known as the Book of Taliesin (NLW Peniarth 2).
