A compelling account of the early years of Glyndwr’s uprising

The first book in a new trilogy which tells the compelling story of the early years of Glyndwr's uprising is published this week.

Glyndwr: Son of Prophecy by the late Moelwyn Jones is an imaginary novel based on the real life and battles of Owain Glyndwr.

The year is 1401, Owain Glyndwr and his growing forces are still no more than a thorn in the side of the English crown. But when a force of some forty men succeed in taking the prestigious castle of Conwy from under the nose of King Henry IV, it marks a dramatic shift in the fortunes of Glyndwr's great Welsh rebellion.
