As the eastern bulwark bordering the Pictish lands and keeper of two additional passes out of the highlands, the region itself was extremely important. However, it was not united. A kingdom out of Din Peledyr and a second hailing from Manaw were likely only two of several kingdoms.
Gododdin was one of the least romanized areas of Roman Britain, and among the first to be given autonomy. Although the region suffered from factionalization during its entire post-Roman British existence, it remained one of the centers of British power during that period.
