In Welsh mythology, Modron ("divine mother") was a daughter of Afallach, derived from the Gaulish goddess Matrona. She was the mother of Mabon, who bears her name as "Mabon ap Modron" ("Mabon, Son of Modron"), and who was stolen away from her when he was three days-old and later rescued by King Arthur. In the Welsh Triads, Modron becomes impregnated by Urien and gives birth to Owain and Morvydd.
