It didn't last, though. The respective Parliaments, fearing that the
united monarchy would become too strong for them, forced Constantine
to re-divide the kingdoms according to the traditional lines.
Constantine's eldest son Gereint inherited the Cambriese throne as
expected. However, the thrones of Winchester and Scone passed to the
King's eldest child Maria. (Alicia was debarred by the Salic Law
from her Cambriese inheritance.) After Constantine's death, it was
settled jointly on Maria and her husband (but who was he?).
