Beddgelert is a village in the Welsh area of Snowdonia, which has one of the most fascinating and historical stories behind the name of the village. The name Beddgelert can be translated as Gelert’s grave and is named for the legendary hound Gelert. According to legend, Gelert’s owner Llewellyn the Great Prince of Gwynedd returned home from hunting to find his baby missing, the cradle overturned and Gelert’s mouth smeared with blood. The prince then drew his sword and killed Gelert, but after hearing the dog’s dying yelp he also heard his baby crying, and discovered it under the upturned cradle together with a wolf that Gelert had killed to protect the child.
Consumed with guilt Llewellyn gave Gelert a great burial ceremony, but could never forget the dog’s dying yelp and never smiled again. This story gave the village its name and also gave rise to a mound in the area being known as the actual Gelert’s grave site, which has become a popular tourist destination. This tourist interest in the area means that Beddgelert is a busy and thriving area but also means that for injury lawyers Beddgelert is a common source of personal injury claims.
