- His birthday is a mystery. An angel foretold his birth to St Patrick, 30 years before it happened - although the exact date is believed to be some time between 462 and 515 AD.
- He was born in a storm. Whenever it was, legend says his mother Non gave birth on a cliff-top in Pembrokeshire - during a fierce storm. At that exact moment, a bolt of lightning from heaven is said to have struck the rock, splitting it in two.
- He had royal heritage. His family was aristocratic. The official biography claims his father was Sant, the Prince of Powys, and his grandfather King Ceredig founded Ceredigion.
- He's not David. That was the name he was baptised with. But Non named her son Dewidd, or Dewi to the locals. Image source, Cadw. Image caption, Welsh artist and Britain's Got Talent finalist, Nathan Wyburn, created this portrait using 1,000 daffodils.
