Royal Wales offers a comprehensive history of the royalty of Wales, from those families that ruled during the early Middle Ages to the predominantly English royal families that have ruled ever since. Included are discussions of royal allegiances and politics in Wales, royal tradition and customs and their effects on Wales, royal visits to Wales, royal patronage in Wales, and Welsh public opinion on the subject of royalty.

Phil Carradice
Royal Wales is immaculately researched and entertainingly written. The author has a colloquial style that will appeal to the historian and lay reader alike. The book takes the reader on a voyage of exploration, from the times of the Welsh princes through the oppression of Edward Longshanks to the present day. It presents the story of royalty in Wales, native and foreign, leaving the reader to make judgments about rights and wrongs. Essential reading for anyone who considers themselves interested in Welsh history.”
