    Welsh chieftain who led a revolt against Henry IV's rule in Wales (1359-1416)


  1. owen glendower

    Owen Glendower, also known as Owain Glyndŵr, was a Welsh ruler and the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. Born in 1359, he instigated a fierce and long-running but ultimately unsuccessful revolt against the English rule of Wales. Glendower is a widely accepted figure in medieval Welsh history and was a national hero for his resistance against English domination. He disappeared around 1412 and was never captured; his death was recorded in 1415. His life has been widely chroniciated in literature, most notably in William Shakespeare's play "Henry IV, Part 1."


  1. Owen Glendower

    Owen Glendower is a historical novel by John Cowper Powys first published in America in 1940, and in the UK in February 1942. The ninth of Powys's novels, it was published five years after he had moved to Corwen in North Wales. Powys had returned to England from America in 1934 with his lover, Phyllis Playter, and it reflects "his increasing sense of what he thought of as his bardic heritage." He gave the surname Playter to one of the fictional characters in the book, as a tribute to Phyllis.
