Greatest Britons: Owain Glyndwr – GB 100322

Sven Longshanks and Max Musson look at the life of Welsh Nationalist hero Owain Glyndwr.

Owain Glyndwr was the last prince of Wales to lead a war of independence against the English, 150 years after Edward I deprived the country of its monarchy.

He was well thought of in English society and likely would have been loyal to the English crown had the uprising succeeded.

He really did look like he would win and he had considerable support among the Scots, French and even English, but for an unexplained reason his army backed down after 8 days of facing the English king.

His men never turned him in and he refused to accept a royal pardon, entering into Welsh folklore as a national hero like King Arthur, who may return one day to finally liberate his people.

Presented by Sven Longshanks and Max Musson
