This chapter examines the early sources for Nest’s life, in particular her ‘abduction’ by Owain ap Cadwgan, placing these sources and the events they describe in the context of politics and gender relations in Wales in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. This entails, in particular, examination of Brut, the Four Branches of the Mabinogi, and medieval Welsh lawcodes.
