The Pugh Dynasty, which began most notably under Gavin I "the Restorer" was a wealthy trading dynasty in English-held Wales in the 1400s. They had a notable claim to the Welsh throne that was passed from King Llewelyn "the Great"'s great-great-grandson, Owain Lawgoch.
Llewelyn "the Great"'s claim to Wales in turn came from King Gruffydd ap Llewelyn, who was the great-great-grandson of Hywel the Good.
Teague and Stuart Branches
While in political exile from Britain in France, King Madoc III fell in love with a Cornish noblewoman, Milisandia Teague. She was the daughter of the Duke of Cornwall, and granddaughter of then King of England. The Royal Wedding caused a decent amount of chaos in England, and led to Evan II "the Blessed" being able to retake Wales.
During Gavin III "the Great"'s campaign to expand Wales, which led to the establishment of Great Brython under his son, Arthur III "the Navigator," he began to court Queen Agnes Stuart of Scotland. Scotland had recently been declared independent of Scandinavia, and the Stuart crown had recently regained its Kingdom. Agnes and Gavin fell in love, and the Pugh-Teague-Stuart line has since inheritted the Crowns of Wales and Scotland, with the heir apparent holding the title of Duke of Cornwall.
