And when Maredudd ap Bleddyn heard that, he sought the king to ask for the land of Orwerth ap Bleddyn, his brother. And the king gave him the custody of the territory until Owain ap Cadwgan should come to the land. In the meantime Owain came, and he went to the king and after giving hostages and promising much money he received the territory from him. Madog, too, promised much money and hostags and conditions in the king’s presence. And after both had accepted [a truce], each one avoided the other during that year until its close.
