. Powys (Kingdom of Powys) was also weakened, and would not again become a military power until joined with Gwynedd under Rhodri the Great some 200 years later. thumb upright left ''Min-y-Mor'' was built to take advantage of the tourist trade following the construction of the railway in 1868. (File:Criccieth - Marine Terrace.JPG) Richard II (Richard II of England) was deposed and imprisoned in 1399, and died in mysterious circumstances the following year. Opposition to the new king, Henry IV (Henry IV of England), was particularly strong in Wales and Cheshire, and in 1400 serious civil unrest broke out in Chester. Henry had already declared Owain Glyndŵr, a descendant of the Princes of Powys (Kingdom of Powys), a traitor, and on 16 September 1400 Owain launched a revolt. He was proclaimed Prince of Wales, and within days a number of towns in the north east of Wales had been attacked. By 1401 the whole of northern and central Wales had rallied to Owain's cause, and by 1403 villages throughout the country were rising in support. English castles and manor houses fell and were occupied by Owain's supporters. Although the garrison at ''Criccieth Castle'' had been reinforced, a French (France) fleet in the Irish Sea stopped supplies getting through, and the castle fell in the spring of 1404. The castle was sacked; its walls were torn down; and both the castle and borough were burned. The castle was never to be reoccupied, while the town was to become a small Welsh backwater, no longer involved in affairs of state. History and geography Builth first emerged in post-Roman (Post-Roman Britain) times, probably on the other side of the Irfon river from its present site at Dol Eglwys (Church Mound) where a ruined early medieval church is thought to have stood. Vortigern, the British ruler alleged to have invited the Saxons (Anglo Saxon) to Britain is sometimes said to have owned land in nearby Builth Road on the Radnorshire side of the River Wye; the site previously having been known as Cwrt Llechrhyd. Early Post-Roman Builth was an independent kingdom. The most famous ruler was Elystan Glodrydd from whom many local gentry claimed descent. As an important component of Rhwng Gwy a Hafren, a political entity referred to in the poems of Taliesin, Builth was regularly at war with the Kingdom of Powys. Ecclesiastically, the Deanery of Builth has always been part of St Davids later Swansea and Brecon, rather than St Asaph, the Powys diocese. Glodrydd probably lived at Llanafan Fawr rather than the modern site of Builth Wells. Until the foundation of the Norman (Normans) town Llanfair ym Muallt the main settlement was Llanafan. Stories about Philip de Braose centre on Llanafan not modern Builth. '''Cynllaith''' was a ''cwmwd'' (commote) of north east Wales which was once part of the Kingdom of Powys and later part of the smaller Kingdom of Powys Fadog. Cynllaith, or at least the part of it called ''Cynlaith Owain'', was part of the inheritance of Owain Glyndŵr in 1370. The titles ''Baron of Glyndyfrdwy and Lord of Cynllaith Owain'' were used by the dispossessed former ruling family of Powys Fadog before Owain was proclaimed Prince of Wales in 1400.

and those to the north; however, Stenton noted that Bede was mainly concerned with the massacre of the monks and does not indicate that he regarded the battle as a historical "turning-point". Stenton, page 78. Koch says that the older view that the battle cut the two British areas off from each other is now "generally understood" to be outdated, as Æthelfrith died soon after, and there is "almost no archaeological evidence for Anglo-Saxon settlement

, and the flower of its youth, never to return. Having left with the troops and Roman administrators, and planning to continue as the ruler of Britain in the future, his practical course was to transfer local authority to local rulers. The earliest Welsh genealogies give Maximus the role of founding father for several royal dynasties, including those of Powys (Kingdom of Powys) and Gwent (Kingdom of Gwent).

Northumbria

of Æthelfrith of Northumbria clashed with Powys. According to Geoffrey of Monmouth, the Northumbrian monarch's political rival, Edwin of Deira (Edwin of Northumbria), was living in exile in Gwynedd (kingdom of Gwynedd) around this time. Historians such as John Morris (John Morris (historian)) have suggested that Æthelfrith attempted to capture him, but presumably King Selyf ap Cynan of Powys denied access through Powys to Edwin in Gwynedd, and seeing an opportunity to further drive

Bleddyn ap Cynfyn and his brother Rhiwallon fought alongside the Anglo-Saxons against the Norman Invasion (Norman conquest of England). In 1067 they allied with the Mercian Eadric the Wild in an attack on the Normans at Hereford, then in 1068 with Earl Edwin of Mercia (Edwin, Earl of Mercia) and Earl Morcar of Northumbria in another attack on the Normans. In 1070 he defeated his half-nephews, the sons

romance. There are allusions to what may have been a sea voyage tale akin to ''The Voyage of Saint Brendan (Brendan)'', but no detailed version of it survives. The earliest certain reference appears in a ''cywydd'' by the Welsh poet Maredudd ap Rhys (''fl.'' 1450-83) of Powys (Kingdom of Powys), which mentions a Madog who is a son or descendant of Owain Gwynedd and who voyaged to the sea. The poem is addressed to a local squire, thanking him for a fishing net on a patron's behalf. Madog is referred to as "Splendid Madog... Of Owain Gwynedd's line, He desired not land... Or worldy wealth but the sea." Enid Roberts (ed.), ''Gwaith Maredudd ap Rhys a'i gyfoedion'' (Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, Aberystwyth, 2003), poem 8.43-6. Original text with the poetical flourishes omitted in the translation within brackets: ''Madog wych, (mwyedig wedd) Iawn genau Owain Gwynedd, Ni fynnai dir, (f'enaid oedd,) Na da mawr ond y moroedd.'' Note that ''genau'' can mean "son" or "descendant" or even "a member of the royal retinue". There are also claims that the Welsh poet and genealogist Gutun Owain wrote about Madoc before 1492. However, Gwyn Williams in ''Madoc, the Making of a Myth'', makes it clear that Madoc is not mentioned in any of Gutun Owain's surviving manuscripts. Rape and Abduction The details of this most famous episode of Nest's life are obscure and vary, depending on who is relating it. Either Nest and Gerald were present at an eisteddfod given, during a truce, by Cadwgan ap Bleddyn, prince of Powys (Kingdom of Powys); or they were not present, and Nest and her husband were "visited" by Owain ap Cadwgan, one of Cadwgan's sons, or they were not visited by Owain, merely attacked by Owain and his men. The usual tale is that Owain hears at the eisteddfod that Gerald is in the neighbourhood, that Gerald's wife is very beautiful, and so he goes to visit her "as his kinswoman", but this is unlikely. The earliest account, that of Caradoc of Llancarfan, relates that "At the instigation of the Devil, he Owain was moved by passion and love for the woman, and with a small company with him...he made for the castle by night." The castle was Cenarth Bychan (possibly Cilgerran Castle; Carew Castle is also mentioned, but is unlikely. Brut y tywysogion: Or, The chronicle of the princes A.D. 681-1282 (Great Britain.

However Rhys returned later the same year with a fleet from Ireland and defeated the men of Powys in a battle in which two of Cadwgan's brothers, Madog and Rhiryd, were killed. Little else can be said of Aurelius Conanus with any certainty; it is not even known in which part of Britain he ruled. Historian John Edward Lloyd suggests that the form ''Caninus'', appearing in one important manuscript of ''De Excidio'', may have been a corruption of the more common ''Cuna(g)nus'', or Cynan in Welsh (Welsh language). Lloyd, p. 132. As such he may be identified with one of the figures of that era who bore that name, such as Cynan Garwyn of Powys (Kingdom of Powys) or his relative Cynin ap Millo. '''Cynllaith''' was a ''cwmwd'' (commote) of north east Wales which was once part of the Kingdom of Powys and later part of the smaller Kingdom of Powys Fadog. Cynllaith, or at least the part of it called ''Cynlaith Owain'', was part of the inheritance of Owain Glyndŵr in 1370. The titles ''Baron of Glyndyfrdwy and Lord of Cynllaith Owain'' were used by the dispossessed former ruling family of Powys Fadog before Owain was proclaimed Prince of Wales in 1400.

Kingdom of Powys

thumb right 250px Powys landscape near Foel (Image:Wales Powys landscape near Foel.jpg) The '''Kingdom of Powys''' was a Welsh (Wales) successor state (succession of states), petty kingdom and principality that emerged during the Middle Ages following the end of Roman rule in Britain. Based on the Romano-British (Romano-British culture) tribal lands of the Ordovices in the west and the Cornovii (Cornovii (Midlands)) in the east, its boundaries originally extended from the Cambrian Mountains in the west to include the modern West Midlands (West Midlands (region)) region of England in the east. The fertile river valleys of the Severn (River Severn) and Tern (River Tern) are found here, and this region is referred to in later Welsh literature (Welsh-language literature) as "the Paradise of Powys".
