Brân receives a very tempting offer from the Irish King, Matholwch.

Matholwch offers to build Brân the Blessed a house large enough to house him and offers him loyalty in exchange for peace. As a Client King of Brân's, Brân would become the King of the Two Islands.

This episode is the 9th episode of the Second Branch of the Mabinogi.
