The Extraordinary Tale of…

The last native-born Prince of Wales, Owain Glyndwr


What began as a land dispute between neighbouring rivals escalated into a decade-long rebellion to end English rule in Wales

Since Wales was violently conquered in 1283, the Welsh had waited for one of their own to rise up and throw off English rule. This need was never more desperate than at the end of the 14th century, when the sympathetic and admired King Richard II was deposed, being replaced by the strict, unyielding Henry IV, who wasted no time in insulting the Welsh by naming his son Hal as Prince of Wales.

Many believed Owain Glyndwr, a beloved noble of excellent Welsh heritage, could be the nation’s hero, although it was more hope than expectation. He had been raised by an Englishman on the death of his father, trained in law in London and fought for the English against the Scots.
