Merfyn Frych was descended from Llywarch Hên, and his father Gwriad had married a daughter of Cynan ap Rhodri. This gave him hereditary claim to the crown of Gwynedd, which he took on the death of Hywel ap Rhodri Molynog in 825. Merfyn married Nest, daughter of Cadel ap Brochwel, which build an alliance with himself and the royal house of Powys. He maintained his power against all his rivals and the Danes, and died in 844. He was succeeded by his son Rhodri "the Great."
