Always great to learn about another High King. Providing royal opportunities for ordinary hardworking folks - even postmasters. I'm surprised Bath has an untranslated name. Looking at WP, the original Latin name for the place was Aquae Sulis (named for a goddess), while public baths in general were Thermae. Agusyl or Therfe are my best guesses for Brithenig derivations, but I'm no expert. [EDIT] I just saw the name "Aquasolis" on your website. [EDIT EDIT] And I just saw that the name is translated on this page. I had assumed that "Acouesols" and "Bath" were different towns before looking all that up. Sorry for the trouble.

Sometimes these guys just pop out at you. I had only wanted to shift over the Kemrese philately section to its own article and put up some information about Post Gemr, and lo and behold I meet one Ralph Allen, a Cornishman and real life GPO reformer. Naturally, such a jolly fellow can hardly nòt become High King! Acouesolles is just the Kerno evolution of Aquae Sulis. I don't know what Kerno "bath" is (bathe is mudnar, an ordinary 1st conjugation verb). If they continued with the Latin term, *y termes might do. No trouble at all! -- I fixed the name in the article. Bath continues to be the Saxon name, however. Am continually amazed with how many wonders of the modern world (*here*'s mind, though *there*'s as well) were facilitated or invented by Cornishmen. Almost as (intellectually / scientifically) prolific as the Scots, and certainly spend much less time stooping to pick up worn half farthings from the street! (Well...the Kernow say they are far thriftier than the Scots, on account of a self-respecting Kernowman would never drop a half farthing on the street in the first place!) Alan comes shortly before Trametheck, inventor of the steam locomotive and the railway. Those two are probably about the most world-renown Dumnonian high kings since perhaps Esudamos (Old King Coel) himself. Elemtilas 15:46, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
