The 13th-century CE story of a faithful dog, The Legend of Gelert became so popular that, in the 18th century CE, a hotel owner in Wales claimed to have found Gelert's grave and charged tourists to see it. Gelert's supposed grave remains a tourist attraction in the village of Beddgelert in the present day with memorial plaques in Welsh and English relating the story.
