successful resistance

allowed the Welsh of Gwynedd to concentrate on those martial skills necessary for their very survival; and the Romano-Britons of western Britain did offer stiffer and an ultimately successful resistance. Resistance to both the Anglo-Saxons and Irish Gaelic invaders then did the Romano-Britons in the east, or the Gallo-Romans in Gaul did in their own defence against the Franks. ref>

heavy fine

, Gruffudd was forced to render homage (Homage (feudal)) and fealty and pay a heavy fine, though he lost no land or prestige. The invasion left a lasting impact on Gruffudd, who by 1116 was in his 60s and with failing eyesight. For the remainder of his life, while Gruffudd continued to rule in Gwynedd, his sons Cadwallon (Cadwallon ap Gruffydd), Owain (Owain Gwynedd), and Cadwaladr ap Gruffydd Cadwaladr


time fighting

, it was taken over by Gwynedd, the senior partner in the alliance. Gruffydd was killed in unknown circumstances the following year. Wales Hugh spent much of his time fighting with his neighbours in Wales. Together with his cousin Robert of Rhuddlan he subdued a good part of northern Wales. Initially Robert of Rhuddlan held north-east Wales as a vassal of Hugh. However in 1081 Gruffydd ap Cynan King of Kingdom of Gwynedd was captured by treachery


literary stories

and the kings of Gododdin or Manaw Gododdin. The town of Caerhun is said to be named for him, though without strong authority. Rhun also appears in several medieval literary stories (Medieval Welsh literature), as well as in the ''Welsh Triads''. His wife was Perwyr ferch Rhûn "Ryfeddfawr" and their son was Beli ap Rhûn "Hîr".


tradition quot

; outlook. The Welsh (Welsh people) of Gwynedd remained conscious of their Romano-British heritage and an affinity with Rome survived long after the Empire retreated from Britain, particularly with the use of Latin in writing and sustaining the Christian religion. Professor Bryan Ward-Perkins, “Why Did the Anglo-Saxons Not Become More British” Trinity College, Oxford, 2000 The Welsh ruling classes

continued to emphasize Roman ancestors within their pedigrees as a way to link their rule with the old imperial Roman order, suggesting stability and continuity with that old order. According to Professor John Davies, " T here is a determinedly Brythonic, and indeed Roman, air to early Gwynedd." So palpable was the Roman heritage felt that Professor Bryan Ward

-Perkins of Trinity College, Oxford, wrote "It took until 1282, when Edward I conquered Gwynedd, for the last part of Roman Britain to fall and a strong case can be made for Gwynedd as the very last part of the entire Roman Empire, east and west, to fall to the barbarians." ''It took until 1282, when Edward I conquered Gwynedd, for the last part of Roman Britain to fall. Indeed a strong case can be made for Gwynedd as the very last


682

, Prince of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd) who became his father-in-law in 1215 Brut y Tywysogion when Reginald married Llywelyn's daughter, Gwladus Ddu. , also '''Cadwallader''' or '''Cadwalader''') was King of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd) (reigned c. 655 – 682). Two devastating plagues happened during his reign, one in 664

and the other in 682, with himself a victim of the second one. Little else is known of his reign. Cadwaladr is most widely recognised as a prominent character in the romantic (Romance (heroic literature)) stories of Geoffrey of Monmouth, where he is portrayed as the last in a line of legendary kings of Britain.

Prince of Deheubarth (909–950) **'''Kingdom of Gwynedd''' - Idwal Foel (916–942) **'''Kingdom of Powys''' - Llywelyn ap Merfyn (900–942) The Peniarth MS. 20 version begins in 682 with a record of the death of Cadwaladr and ends in 1332. The entries for the earlier years are brief, usually records of deaths and events such as eclipses, plagues or earthquakes, but later entries give much more detail. The main focus is on the rulers of the kingdoms

taking power

, which was part of the Principality, and the Royal lordships of Glamorgan and Pembroke (Pembrokeshire), was made up of numerous small lordships (Welsh Marches), each with its own courts, laws and other customs. After Edwin was killed in battle against Cadwallon ap Cadfan of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd) and Penda of Mercia, Northumbria fell into disarray, with Eanfrith (Eanfrith of Bernicia) taking power in the sub-kingdom of Bernicia and Osric taking power in Deira. According to Bede, Osric was, like Eanfrith, a Christian who reverted to paganism upon coming to power. '''Gruffydd ap Cynan''' (standard Welsh: Gruffydd ap Cynan) (c. 1055 – 1137) was a King of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd). In the course of a long and eventful life, he became a key figure in Welsh resistance to Norman (Norman dynasty) rule, and was remembered as King of all Wales (King of Wales). As a descendant of Rhodri Mawr (Rhodri the Great), Gruffydd ap Cynan was a senior member of the princely house of Aberffraw. '''Gruffudd ap Cynan ab Owain Gwynedd''' was the grandson of Owain Gwynedd a famous king of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd) and ruler of most of Wales in the 12th century. The longer patronymic form of his name is usually used to distinguish him from the earlier and better-known Gruffudd ap Cynan, king of Gwynedd.

Kingdom of Gwynedd

'''Ewloe Castle''' ( ) is a native Welsh castle (Castle) near the town of Ewloe in Flintshire, Wales. It was one of the last fortifications built by the Princes of Wales (Kingdom of Gwynedd) before the invasion of Wales (Welsh Wars) by Edward I (Edward I of England).

The area, which had been fought over by the Princes of Gwynedd (Kingdom of Gwynedd) and the Earls of Chester (Earl of Chester), was now at relative peace. Llywelyn the Last began construction in 1257 on the site adding to earlier work undertaken by Owain Gwynedd and Llywelyn the Great.
