Celebrations to mark Owain Glyndŵr Day

Celebrations to mark Owain Glyndŵr Day took place throughout Wales last week. He was the last person to legitimately hold the title Prince of Wales. Owain Glyndŵr (c.1349-c.1416) was the leader of a Welsh revolt against English rule between 1400 and 1409. He created the first Welsh parliament at Machynlleth in 1404 and 16th September 2017 marked 617 years since he raised his standard against the English invaders. A war that was fought on behalf of justice and independence and a battle that continues to this very day. It was his determination to stand up against English oppression that makes him a Welsh hero and his memory an inspiration for generations to come.
