The history of relations between the Welsh and their rulers goes back far beyond the birth of Britain as a single, unified nation, and it may surprise readers to learn how recent events have been shaped by this history. From Roman emperors through medieval dictators to modern constitutional monarchs, the pattern of changing attitudes and loyalties is traced in this book, which offers a fresh new look at the ruling families of Wales in their historical context.
