Welcome, Companions, to the Prydain Wiki!

Open a tome of wondrous lore! Explore the enchanted Land of Prydain! Meet the people, visit the places, befriend the beasts, live the stories, hold the artifacts found in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain! The goal of this encyclopedia is to be the most comprehensive and visually beautiful Prydain resource available anywhere, on-line or in print. YOU can continue to help make this happen, with the sole proviso that contributors share an abiding love of Assistant Pig-Keepers, sharp-tongued Princesses and oracular swine.

WE HAVE 283 ARTICLES since 2008. Add more, or improve those you see!

If you see a gap, an error or an opportunity, feel free to add text and images as appropriate by clicking the green "EDIT" button at top right of any page. (Please note that the wiki system requires you to register and log in before editing any wiki article.) All edits are reviewed within a few hours, and edited if necessary to meet a high standard of literacy appreciated by fans of Lloyd Alexander.

Before selecting "CREATE PAGE", please see the article "all pages", or choose a page from the Contents below. Most entries are written in the past tense ("was" instead of "is") to evoke a sense of historical mythology. We're always adding images – maps, book covers, and illustrations by artists both professional and aspiring, even pictures of people or places that might stand in for regions or characters in this enchanted land. If you are a contributing artist and would like to have your own page of Prydain-related art, feel free to create a page in your name, or ask me to make one for you!

Thanks to all for your improvements, additions and comments. Enjoy your time in the enchanted land of Prydain!
