  • Name Dafydd ap Llywelyn  
    History birth to death 
    • When his father died in 1240, he soon rose in revolt and regained much of what had been lost on his father's death. According to Matthew of Paris "During all this time, the Welsh, swarming from their lurking-places, like bees, spread fire and slaughter, and unceasingly ravaged the countries adjoining their own; the king [sent] three hundred knights...with the necessary money and supplies for the read, to check the insolence of the Welsh." He also says that the king, like a woman, stayed from from the fight in comfort and safety. By 1245, Dafydd was pursued into Northern Wales. When winter came, the English forces withdrew, but the revolt crumbled when Dafydd died. [1]
