The Great Pendragon
The Gwessii were the tribe that King Vortigen drew his power base from, and it it was they,rather than the nation of Logres or Britain, who gained the most under his rule.
Through a combination of ruthlessness and astute marriages to the Saxon mercenaries employed by Vortigern they rose to a position of ultimate power among the tribes of Brtiain.
The Gwessii of today are a much reduced force, though recent news that King Cerdic and his followers consider themselves Gwessii more than Saxons may have far reaching political impact on both the Gwessi tribe itself, and on the fortunes of Logres in general…
since 498 AD they have had a strong foothold in the Sarum Court
