Most of the information about Brochweil Iskitrog dates back to a relatively late time, however, in Taliesin's poems (6th century) it is written that their author was at one time his court poet and that his court was located in Pengvern, “where the Severn curls” (it is generally believed that Pengvern was not far from the current Shrewsbury ).
He was either the son of Kinan, the son of Kasanaut Wledig, the son of Ridved, the son of Kadeyrn  , or the son of Manugan, the son of Pasken, the son of Cadell , as the son of Kadeyrn  . According to the Harlean genealogies, Brochweil was the son of Keenan (Kingen) , the son of Maugan  , the son of Pasgen , the son of Kategirn, the son of Cadell , the son of Selemeaoun. [five]
The Brochweil form refers to the modern Welsh language ; for the middle of the VI century it was reconstructed as Brocco-maglos  . Near the village of Pentrevoil in Guineth, a gravestone with an inscription was found that mentions the name Brohomagl [os] and which dates back to the middle of the VI century  . Some believe that this is the gravestone of Brochweil Powysky.
Many legends are associated with his name. In particular, his son is considered to be Saint Tisilio , very revered in Wales. Medieval poets often call Powys "the land of Brochweil." The village of Meifod is closely connected with Saint Tisilio, presumably there was once the residence of Brochweil - Cair-Meguaidd. [eight]
Brokhvayl Iskitrog should not be confused with the mentioned Bede, the Honorable Brokhmayl, who died at the Battle of Chester in 613 .
