Welsh Kings, Native Rulers of Wales by Kari Maund

In the early middle ages Wales was composed of a variety of independent kingdoms with varying degrees of power, influence, and stability, each ruled by proud and obdurate lineages. In this period a "kingdom of Wales" never existed, but the more powerful leaders, like Rhodri Mawr, Gruffudd ap Llywleyn, and Llywelyn ap Gruffundd, sought to extend their rule over the entire country. In this book, Kari Maund produces revealing pictures of the leading Welsh kings and princes of the day and explores both their contribution to Welsh history and their impact on the wider world. It restores these men to their rightful place among the past rulers of the island of Britain.
