Queen Elizabeth Tudor's Heroic Welsh Foremother!Born in 1097 in Aberffraw Castle, Princess Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd ap Cynan was always destined for great things.

Together husband and wife fought for and ruled southern Wales, challenging the Norman Conquest of Wales and proving once and for all the nobility and courage of the Welsh people, a courage that endures across the centuries and lives in the heart of every Welsh man, woman, and child.Includes an extensive timeline covering over 400 years of English and Welsh medieval history.
