Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd, the Warrior Princess of Deheubarth (the Legendary Women of World History, #6) by Laurel A. Rockefeller

     Princess Gwenllian was a woman ahead of her time. Proud, courageous and a warrior, this woman learned to protect her people early on. At sixteen she fell in love with  Prince Gruffydd. Together they ruled and fought for Southern Wales.  Right to the bitter end, Princess Gwenllian proved just how strong she was.

     Well written, interesting and informative. This book is a quick read but well worth the time. For those history buffs, it will transport you to a time and place where strong women were not the norm. I was amazed and delighted to discover the character of this Princess. Give it a read and I know you'll enjoy it.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it introduced me to someone I'd never heard of.

  1. Sadly most people do not know about Welsh history. In school we are taught the Norman Conquest more or less finished in October 1066 when William of Normandy defeated King Harold Godwinson of England and that after that it was just a matter of subduing rebellious English. But in fact Hastings was just the beginning. The events you read about in Gwenllian are still resonating in British politics today, particularly in the Welsh Assembly where Plaid Cymru, the party dedicated towards Welsh succession out of the United Kingdom, holds considerable power.
