Sources disagree on who was Rhys's wife. BLG1952 Philipps of Cilyblaidd shows two wives with Gwladys as his first wife by whom he had issue, we assume that both of the two daughters that we have identified were hers and Gwenllian as his second wife and mother of Grufydd. BLG1952 Lloyd-Davis of Whittington reports that Gruffydd-hir was a younger son of Rhys by Gwladys.

4 Gruffydd-hir
BLG1952 Lloyd-Davis of Whittington reports that Gruffydd-hir was a younger son of Rhys by Gwladys. It does not identify him as the Lord of South Wales and so pending receipt of clarifying information we show that he was different from the Gruffydd who was Lord.
