Owain Glyn Dwr is the most commanding figure in the history of Wales, His revolt (1400-1409) gave the people of Wales a glimpse of their country as an independent state. Written by Britain's leading medieval historian, this is the first scholarly book for over fifty years to present Owain and his revolt to a general audience. It will appeal to those who are fascinated by national heroes in all periods and is of particular interest to those who are intrigued by this most famous movement in the history of Wales, and by the mystery surrounding its remarkable leader.
