Llewelyn ap Gruffydd
On September 16th 1400 Owain Glyndwr began a struggle to gain Welsh independence that was to last for 16 years. He roundly defeated Henry IV's army at Hyddgen on the slopes of Pumlumon in the summer of 1401 and then marched victoriously into southern Wales. In response Henry led a huge army from Worcester to capture Owain and crush the rising in its early stages. He arrived in the Llandovery area and press-ganged Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a landowner from Caeo who was in his mid 60s, into his service to help him find Glyndwr's base.
This photograph is of a memorial to Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan located at Llandovery. The image is converted to monochrome to increase to contrast with a small vignette mask to draw attention to the statue and close in the otherwise bland background
