Princess. Anchoress in Powys, Wales. One day Prince Brochwel of Powys was hunting and chased a hare. The animal ran to Melangell who shield it in her cloak. The prince was so moved by her courage and sanctity that he gave her the valley as a place of sanctuary. Melangell became abbess of a small religious community there. A church on the site continues today to host retreats.
