Owain Glyndwr is one of the most important figures in Welsh history. This examination of the traditions which have developed about the location of his death and where he might have been buried rigorously assesses claims, based on evidence in manuscripts and on the ground.
Owain Glyndwr is one of the most important figures in Welsh history. Winner of the 2016 Welsh Book of the Year award for the original Welsh-language version of this book, Gruffydd Aled Williams here examines the traditions which have grown up in the 600 years since Glyndwr's death around the last days of his life. Although some attention has been given to these issues in popular books about Glynd r, many accounts have been rather misleading or fantastical. In this book, Williams rigorously assesses claims made about the location of Glyndwr's death and where he might have been buried, based upon evidence in manuscripts and on the ground, and sifts through the truth and the fiction. He also investigates Glyndwr family history and, based on new research, brings to light information available in English for the first time, for example about Glyndwr's illegitimate daughter from Tal-y-bont.
