Arawn, Welsh Celtic King of the Otherworld
The first Branch of stories in a book now known as “Y Mabinogion” features a character who calls himself Arawn, king of the otherworld. The story begins with a mortal prince named Pwyll, and in their initial meeting Pwyll comes across his magical red eared hounds and steals his quarry, leading him to agree to swap places places and kill his rival in the Otherworld. It’s a fascinating tale and worth knowing.
