Dafydd ap Llywelyn: The Shield of Wales
Steve Griffiths Other books by Steve Griffiths
Prince Dafydd ap Llywelyn, the "Shield of Wales", is a seemingly forgotten royal sovereign of Wales, whose brief, but kaleidoscopic life heralded a vortex of fraternal strife, ambitious politics and habitual bloody conflict. He was the favourite son of legendary Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great and although Dafydd's life was cruelly cut short, he succeeded in cementing a respected legacy that has thankfully survived the grey fog of eight centuries. His life, during the first half of the 13th century, is vividly portrayed in this refreshing account.
