Three Frivolous Bards of the Island of Britain:

Here we have three rulers trying to take on the office of a bard. The idea is that these men do not have the training to be bards--they are of the warrior class, not the druid or bardic class--and so are considered frivolous. Arthur is related has having occasionally composed englyniau (epigrams), such as in Culhwch ac Olwen.
