Castell Rhuthyn /Rhuthyn Castle


This is another tune from the Cambrian Minstrelsie. It is there used as the melody for the song 'Marwolaeth Mari' ( The Death of Mary).

Rhuthyn does appear as a historical spelling of Ruthin where there is a castle so I've located it there but there is also a reference by Iolo Morgannwg to an old castle at Llanilid as Rhuthyn castle which would put it in Glamorganshire!
