Saint Clydog Biography

Saint Clydog was a sixth-century king as part of the Brychan family who ruled Ewyas, England. A nobleman’s daughter fell in love with Clydog but a friend who wanted the girl himself killed Clydog near the River Monnow in the Black Mountains. His body was placed on an ox-cart and driven home.

While on transit, the ox stopped, the yoke broke, and the ox refused to be driven further. So, in order that Clydog could have a proper burial, a church was built on the spot now known as Clodock and he was buried in the hallowed ground around it. Miracles are reported at his tomb.

Due to a translation error, some older lists describe him as a martyr – the word Merthyr means shrine and refers to the church, but it was misinterpreted as a martyr by some writers.
