The name Annwn is taken from “Preiddeu Annwn” a cryptic early Welsh poem of sixty lines from the “Book of Taliesin“. The text recounts an expedition of King Arthur to Annwn, the Welsh other world, a world of delights and eternal youth where disease is absent and food is ever abundant.
The photo is of a camp wall that Lady Ydeneya painted for Pencampwr. It depicts King Arthur’s arrival on the shores of Annwn.
The household motto originally chosen was “subsisto somnium” which translates loosely as “stop the nonsense”. It relates to encouraging household members to not become embroiled in the disagreements that can bring the game into a bad state.
There has been some discussion recently to change this motto to something more fitting along the lines of “contagiosus est precario” which translates as “Courtesy is Contagious”.
