Gorsedd Cymru, or simply Yr Orsedd, is a society of Welsh-language poets, writers, musicians and others who have contributed to the Welsh language and to public life in Wales, its aim being to honour such individuals and help develop and promote their respective fields. Siân Phillips was inducted into the green-robed Ovate level of the Gorsedd, into which those individuals who have passed the first two Gorsedd entrance examinations, or those who are made honourary members of the Gorsedd, are inducted.
