For the complete scoop on Robert the Bruce. If you watched the movie Braveheart, please forget everything you learned about anyone or any event depicted. It was all fiction.

Llywellen the Great was to Wales as Robert the Bruce was to Scotland, waging war against England and gaining independence for Wales. Keep in mind that his wife Joan was the daughter of English King John (Lackland).  When King John invaded Welsh lands in Gwynedd, Llywellen had to take a stand against his in laws. When John died in 1216, Llywellen continued his quest for independence in taking on his brother in law, King Henry III and the Marcher Lords. His daughter, Gwenllen, was a Welsh hero in ger own right and worthy of her own page in this anthology.
