GWRTHIGERN.  Welsh name which Yonge renders "excelling king."  Other critics make it "Vir Regalis, man prince," from Welsh gwr = "man" + theyrn (Tigernos) = "a prince." (Irish Version of the Historia Britonum of Nennius, Todd-Herbert, 1848).  The Latinized form is Vortigern; the Irish Gortigern; Old English Wyrtgeorn.
