Melangell was an Irish princess who lived as a hermit in a remote part of Wales. She was praying in a clearing in the woods when Prince Powys, who was hunting in the area, came upon her. The hare his hounds had been chasing hid under her skirts. T e prince was so impressed by Melangell’s holiness that he gave her the land as a refuge —not only for animals, but anyone fleeing harm.
