On 16 September every year, thousands in Wales celebrate the life and legacy of the "rebel" Prince of Wales.Owain's sons were either taken prisoner or died in battle and had no issue. Gruffudd, born about 1375, was captured by the English, confined in Nottingham Castle, and taken to the Tower of London in 1410. He died in prison of bubonic plague in about 1412. Maredudd, whose date of birth is unknown, was still living in 1421 when he accepted a pardon. Little is known about Madog, Thomas, and John. Owain had additional illegitimate children: David, Gwenllian, Ieuan, and Myfanwy.

Owain Glyndŵr: The Last Welsh Prince of Wales Welsh Hero Owain Glyndŵr: The Last Welsh Prince of Wales

Azure a cross Or on an inescutcheon of five Vert a Tudor Rose quarterly counter-changed Argent and Gules.Owain ap Gruffydd ( c. 1354– c. 1415), commonly known as Owain Glyndŵr or Glyn Dŵr ( pronounced [ˈoʊain ɡlɨ̞nˈduːr], anglicised as Owen Glendower), was a Welsh leader, soldier and military commander in the Late Middle Ages, who led a 15-year-long revolt with the aim of ending English rule in Wales. He was an educated lawyer, forming the first Welsh parliament under his rule, and was the last native-born Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. [1] [2] In February 1405, Glyndŵr negotiated the " Tripartite Indenture" with Edmund Mortimer and Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland. The Indenture agreed to divide England and Wales among the three of them. [11] Wales would extend as far as the rivers Severn and Mersey, including most of Cheshire, Shropshire and Herefordshire. The Mortimer Lords of March would take all of southern and western England and the Percys would take the north of England. [41] [42] [a] Despite the large bounty placed on him by the English crown, Glyndŵr was never betrayed or captured, and in Welsh culture he acquired a mythical status alongside the likes of Cadwaladr, Cynon ap Clydno and King Arthur as a folk hero awaiting the call to return and liberate his people – " Y Mab Darogan" ('The Foretold Son'). [4] In William Shakespeare's play Henry IV, Part 1 he appears as the character Owen Glendower as a king rather than a prince.
