They came, they saw, they conquered - words that accurately describe the actions of the Norman conquest of Britain. In 1097 AD, with the subjugation of England and Scotland complete, the Norman king, William Rufus, gathered his mighty forces at the borders of Wales; his intentions were to simply annihilate the Welsh nation and rule its lands.Earlier that year, in the royal household of the king of Gwynedd, a princess was born; a child who in future years would rise from the ashes of pain and despair, to lead her people in body and spirit against these foreign intruders.Through her valiant, unselfish and untimely tragic actions, her notoriety grew to rival the infamous Celtic warrior queen Buddug (Boudica). Then, on the eve of battle, when the impassioned Welsh forces stood facing the mightiest army in Europe, a cry resounded from the throats of countless thousands of patriotic Welshmen and women, that would ultimately drive them on to victory Gwenllian!
