N2 - This article investigates the motivations behind royal pilgrimage to Rome inthe early Middle Ages by examining the journeys of three Welsh kings(Cyngen ap Cadell in 854, Hywel in 886, and Hywel Dda in 928). Thesejourneys have rarely been considered as a group, and in bringing themtogether this article proposes a new interpretation of Welsh royalpilgrimages, highlighting the important context of English overlordship. Byscrutinizing the Welsh evidence in a comparative context, placing theseWelsh journeys alongside examples from England and Ireland, this articlealso aims to contribute to our understanding of broader trends in earlymedieval royal pilgrimage.
