Comments for RHONWEN:

This was used for the name 'Rowena', who was the sister of either Hengist or Horsa, the Saxon mercenary leaders whom Vortigern invited to Britain. Wanting to marry her, Vortigern asked them what they wanted in exchange for her. They wanted Kent, and they got it, thus beginning the Anglo-Saxon wars against the British.
