Llywelyn is the eldest of Arthur's three children and was the first post war royal to be born to the Royal Family. The Royal Family was in a perilous state. The direct royal line was down to just Arthur himself and his brother, Christian, the Duke of Deheubarth. With the birth of Llywelyn was the glimmer of dynastic stability. The young prince was soon followed by his brother, Iestyn and then Heledd, with the Duke of Deheubarth having a daughter (Catrin). This second generation of royals although separated by 9 years between eldest and youngest were brought up together, partly to foster a family spirit, partly to allow greater protection in a kingdom still troubled by republicanism and with a communist party still looming large in the political circus.

The House of Morgannwg had not had an easy time since coming to power in 1755. The House had spent 43 years at war between the 2nd War of Independence and the Civil War, and even when not at war for its very existence, the House was fighting political wars to retain power and control, with only two of the ten previous monarchs living to see past 50 and with Llywelyn already the joint second longest serving monarch from the House of Morgannwg and being joint 6th longest serving monarch (34 years as of 2016) as well as being only the third monarch to move into his fifth decade. The 20th Century had seen already a monarch die early in life to be succeeded by a fascist monarch, whose actions nearly brought the crown to its knees. The post war years seeing two monarchs who between them managed to cling to their thrones. The challenges facing him at his coronation, whilst not as drastic as those faced by his father were still considerable

Current Line of Succession (As of 2016)

The current line of succession runs according to the amended rules of succesion of descent from King Arthur I of Wales, with direct primogeniture. The rules governing succession were originally altered during the reign of Iago, but they faced fine tuning during both Marged's and Arthur's reign to find their current form.

The revised Succession Act records the following rules for the Royal House of Oldenburg-Morgannwg.

  • The rank & title of Prince/Princess of Wales is restricted to the children and grandchildren of the monarch
  • If a Great-Grandchild does not have an independent title, they will be allowed to use the courtesy title of "Lord/Lady". However, their children will not be eligible to inheirit the right.
  • The Royal House operates a total primogeniture, giving equal rights to females in the line of succession.
  • Male line descendants lose the right to the House name of Morgannwg/Oldenburg-Morgannwg at the start of the Great-Grandchild generation in descent from a reigning monarch.
