Owain Glyndwr: The Last Prince of Wales
Peter Gordon Williams Other books by Peter Gordon Williams
On the morning of September 16, in the year 1400, before a large assembly of fighting men from Gwynedd and Powys, Owain Glyn Dwr raised the flag of rebellion against English hegemony. From that time on, until his death c.1416, Owain fought a succession of savage battles against superior English forces.
This is the compelling tale of a warrior prince and a host of other characters, ranging from his loyal bodyguard Madoc to mad King Charles of France, who influenced his life.
Owain Glyn Dwr was more than a courageous and resourceful commander; he was an eminent scholar who, in the pursuit of learning and scholarship, looked beyond the boundaries of Wales. He devoted his life to attempting to establish Wales as an independent parliamentary democracy. His strength and sincerity shone forth in an age noted for its cynicism and corruption.
Many heirs to the English throne have been spuriously invested with the title Prince of Wales. The people of Wales acknowledge but one man who can claim the title 'The Last Prince of Wales' - his name is Owain Glyn Dwr, and this is his story.
