Branwen was born in the Kingdom of Gwynedd (modern-day Wales) to the storm god Leir and to Penarddun.

Upon adulthood, her brother Bran was crowned king of Britain. He agreed Branwen to wed with King Matholwch of Ireland, but upon learning he was mistreating his sister, led an army across the Irish Sea to rescue her. The ensuing war claimed both the lives of Matholwch and of Bran, who was beheaded.[1]

It is unknown which form took Branwen, if she was a demigodess or a a mortal, with a classic humanoid or a giantess form.
