If it had not been for Owain Glyndr's 15-year struggle against overwhelming odds, the Welsh would not have survived as Europe's oldest nation. His war is the defining era in the history of Wales. Yet Glyndr is hardly known - a cultured, literate warrior who was never betrayed or captured and vanished into history. No less than six separate invasions were beaten back by Glyndr's army of volunteers before he disappeared, his family and children either dead or imprisoned for life. Not for Glyndr the brutal public death of Braveheart, nor a grave to desecrate - only an immortal legacy of hope and freedom. His war of independence led the way for the success of another mab darogan (son of prophecy) seven decades later, when a Welsh army won at Bosworth Field and the Tudor dynasty was founded. This book tells us how Glyndr came to stir Wales into war, and why his name still resonates today as one of the greatest warriors the world has ever seen.

The first ever full-scale biography of the last native Prince of Wales who fought to maintain an independent Wales. If it had not been for Owain Glyndŵr's 15-year struggle against overwhelming odds, the Welsh would not have survived as Europe's oldest nation. His war is the defining era in the history of Wales. Yet Glyndŵr is hardly known - a cultured, literate warrior who was never betrayed or captured and vanished into history. No less than six separate invasions were beaten back by Glyndŵr's army of volunteers before he disappeared into history, his family and children either dead or imprisoned for life, but he was never betrayed. Not for Glyndŵr the brutal public death of Braveheart, nor a grave to desecrate - only an immortal legacy of hope and freedom. His war of independence led the way for the success of another mab darogan (son of prophecy) seven decades later, when a Welsh army won at Bosworth Field and the Tudor Dynasty was founded. This book tells us how Glyndŵr came to stir Wales into war, and why his name still resonates today as one of the greatest warriors the world has seen.

1 July 1969. The Investiture of the new Prince of Wales. When Arianwen Hughes is arrested driving with a home-made bomb near Caernarfon Castle, her case seems hopeless. Her brother Caradog, her husband Trevor, and their friend Dafydd are implicated in the plot, the evidence against them damning. Ben Schroeder's reputation as a barrister is riding high after the cases of Billy Cottage (A Matter for the Jury) and Sir James Digby (And is there Honey Still for Tea?). But defending Arianwen will be his greatest challenge yet. Trevor may hold the only key to her defence, but he is nowhere to be found. . .

In this lively interdisciplinary study, Elissa R. Henken combines the tools of the historian and the folklorist to explore the development of a powerful, polysemous cultural symbol. Owain Glyndwr, called Owen Glendower by Shakespeare, led the last major armed rebellion of the Welsh against the English in the early fifteenth century. He has become an important symbol of modern Welsh nationalism. Henken examines the roles Glyndwr played both in his own lifetime and in subsequent centuries.

Wales in the 14th Century was a country in ruins. After a hundred years of English occupation, famine, plague and oppression the country exploded into revolt led by the mysterious Owain Glyndwr. Owain was a successful member of the Anglo-Welsh aristocracy and seemed the model of the new Welshman that was resigned to English rule. However, beneath the surface Owain was the decedent of the last princes of Wales and embodied his countrymen's yearning for freedom. The novel tells the story of Owain's early life and why he came to rebel against the English. We see Owain from his earlier years as he learns of the evil of the Anglo-Norman barons, how he goes to London, participates in the Peasants Revolt and becomes a friend of King Richard II. How the fall of Richard and the rise of Henry IV lead to his rebellion. Richly detailed and full of description of the period and the reality of life in the 14th and 15th Century, “The Dragon Wakes” tells a forgotten story of revolt, revolution, and high politics in low places.
