The hopes of the Welsh killed by a Scottish man under the pay of the English.

Posted April 29th, 2018 at 05:01 PM by llywelyn ap gruffydd

owain lawgoch was born around 1330 and was the great-great-grandson of Llywelyn the Great and a great-nephew of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd who was the last but one native welsh prince (owain glyndwr) .

After the death of llywelyn ap gruffydd, Edward Longshanks tried his best to extinguish the lineage of llywelyn and there for end the dream of welsh independence.

This was a traumatic time for the welsh.

Here some quotes on the death of llywellyn.

The history that lies in animal species
