Owain Glyndwr

The Story of Wales

Owain led the last major revolt of the Welsh against English power, a revolt which began in 1400. Anger and protest against English rule had been building up for a century and the spark for the revolt was the seizure of some of Owain’s land by Baron Grey of Ruthin. Owain was a highly effective guerrilla leader but he also captured some major targets, like the Norman castle at Harlech which became his headquarters. He built impressive alliances, including one with the King of France, and developed a vision for a Wales with a parliament, an independent church and universities. But it all ended in failure.
