The genealogical collection known as the 'Harleian genealogies' is one of the few surviving texts written in early medieval Wales. It is commonly accepted that the collection was finalized in St Davids in c.954, but it is less frequently acknowledged that the extant text is the result of the combination of a number of older, pre-existing written sources. It is argued here that the core of the Harleian genealogies derives from a genealogical appendix written for the Historia Brittonum at some point in the decades immediately prior to 872, into which was later interpolated sections taken from a number of other genealogical texts.
