Goursez Vreizh (the Gorsedd of Brittany) in 1906 A gorsedd is a community or coming together of modern-day bards. The word is of Welsh origin, meaning “throne”. It is occasionally spelled gorsedh (especially in Cornwall), or goursez in Brittany.
When the term is used without qualification, it usually refers to the national Gorsedd of Wales, namely Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, meaning “The Gorsedd of Bards of the Island of Britain”). However, other gorseddau exist, such as the Cornish Gorseth Kernow and the Breton Goursez Vreizh.
