Edeym. (Edern)(Eternus)(Latin: Æturnus).
His father is possibly named Padarn Beisrudd, which literally translates as Paternus of the "red tunic" (or red robe). One traditional interpretation identifies Padarn as a Roman (or Romano-British) official of reasonably high rank who had been placed in command of Votadini troops stationed in the Clackmannanshire region of Scotland in the 380s or earlier by the Emperor Magnus Maximus. Alternatively, he may have been a frontier chieftain who was granted Roman military rank, a practice attested elsewhere along the empire's borders at the time. In all likelihood, Padarn's command in Scotland was assumed after his death by his son, Edern, and then passed to Edern's son, Cunedda.
According to Old Welsh tradition contained in section 62 the Historia Brittonum, He was from Manaw Gododdin, the modern Clackmannanshire region of Scotland:
##Paternus (Padarn Beisrudd, of the red robe) father ?
##Tacitus (Tegid) grandfather
