The Anecdotage of Glasgow
Parentage of St. Mungo

The saint is said to have been born about A.D. 527, and to have been the son of Ewen ap Urien, a prince of Strathclyde, his mother being Thenaw, a daughter of Loth, King of Northumbria, which kingdom then extended along the eastern coast, from the Firth of Forth, or Scots Sea, as it was long named, to the Firth of Tyne.

The mother of St. Thenaw is said to have been either an aunt or half-sister of the famous King Arthur. The saint was thus cousin to King Arthur, and sister to the "gentle Gawaine", so renowned as one of the chief knights of the Round Table.
