Introduction the the Medieval Princes of Wales

During the years of 1087 to 1409, over three hundred years, it was the men of this section of my website that were the backbone of resistance to the Norman invader. It was they who time and time again led the fighting men of Wales in many a 'bloody' struggle in an attempt to keep my nation free.

Of course there were many other other minor princes within each kingdom but they were subservient to these, however, these were the princes who could rightfully call themselves 'The Prince of Wales'. Enjoy my scripting of their attempts, for I salute their valiant endeavours.

Most of the dates and some detail for this section have been confirmed by my 'bible' Brut Y Tywysogyn or The Chronicle of the Princes. Peniarth Ms. 20 Version translated by Thomas Jones of University College of Wales, Aberystwyth. To whom I am extremely grateful.
