This volume provides the first comprehensive collection of charters, letters, and other documents issued by native rulers of Wales from the early twelfth century to the Edwardian conquest of 1282–83 that extinguished independent rule. The texts, almost all in Latin, are accompanied by full English summaries and annotation. This collection makes accessible a key body of source material for the study of medieval Wales during “the age of princes”—an era when native rulers struggled for power among themselves and with Marcher lords and the English crown.
“In every sense this is a massive achievement. . . . It should be on the shelves of everyone with an interest in medieval history or the history of Wales.”—Montgomeryshire Collections
