The king Macsen sees a young woman in his dream who is so beautiful that when he wakes, he thinks of nothing else but to go to sleep again because he cannot live without her. For several years his envoys scour the world in order to find her. He eventually will meet the princess in the isle of Britain in the town of Caernarfon in Wales.

-Following a curse Llew Llaw Giffes nephew of Gwydion cannot marry a woman from the world of men: the magician therefore collects broom, ferns, meadowsweet and creates Blodeuwed, woman borne/made of flowers but, as a result of his unfaithfulness, Blodeuwed tries to kill her spouse. Tired of all this plotting, Gwydion transforms her into an owl so that she can only live at night and incurs the contempt of other birds.
