Creiddylad was the daugter of Leir.

She was betrothed to Gwythr, the god of winter, but his younger brother Gwynn, the god of springtime, fell in love with her and abducted her. For the next months, Gwythr pursued Gwynn, and retrieved Creiddylad at the start of winter. Gwynn would abduct her again the next spring, starting the eternal cycle anew.[1]

Strength level

If she is an average Tuatha de Danaan, she can lift about 25 tons.[3]
