The Mabinogion is a collection of ancient tales compiled by medieval Welsh authors between the twelfth and fourteenth centuries. These legends are written in Middle Welsh and are preserved in two medieval manuscripts, the Llyfr Gwyn Rhydderch (the White Book of Rhydderch) and the Llyfr Goch Hergest (the Red Book of Hergest), each appropriately named for the color of its cover. The stories contained in The Mabinogion stem from the much more ancient oral tradition of the Celtic people, who relied on their priestly caste of Druids for their cultural memory.
