Coel I - Coellus in Holinshed ([see pic #1 above Monarchs, table column 3, entry 5]); Coel I was of western British ancestry according to R W Morgan (Pic #2 above or see Royal family tree on the web page of National CV of Britain), the eastern branch of the royal family apparently lacking a male heir; but he was simply the son of Marius according to Tysilio, Holinshed & Enderbie, and De Wavrin.
When King Marius was dead, Coillus (Coel I), his son, who was a very courteous man graceful, wise, brave, and hardy, reigned after him; he knew all the Roman laws, for he had learned them in his youth at Rome, where he had been brought up, and he greatly loved the Romans, because he had received from them the knowledge of many a fine art and science.

Coel I was the Old King Cole of nursery rhyme fame.
